About TAWS

The inaugural meeting of T.A.W.S. was held at the 48th Australian National Square Dance Convention in Adelaide, South Australia, in June 2007 where a large group of interested dancers attended to find out more about T.A.W.S. It was a huge success, and attendees unanimously agreed that the formation of TAWS should proceed.
