Announcement from the ANSDC Board 19/11/2020

The Australian National Square Dance Convention Board (ANSDCB) is excited to advise that the National Square Dance Convention for 2022 will now be held in the regional town of Goulburn, NSW, 21 - 25 April 2022. The Convention in Adelaide will now be held in 2023. After consultation with past and future convenors and researching possible locations, we are pleased to announce that Jason and Leanne Nicholson will be leading a team on behalf of the Australian National Square Dance Convention Board to bring you a great dance experience in 2022.

The committee will provide more information in the coming weeks so stay tuned for updates.

We wish all of our dancing friends across the country a wonderful Christmas and look forward to everyone getting back on the dance floor in 2021.

Announcement from the ANSDC Board 7/12/2020

Good evening, good day, greetings,

Further to the recent statements issued about future National Square Dance Conventions, The Australian National Square Dance Convention Board is pleased to announce that the 2024 National will be held in Darwin with 2025 in Queensland.

Once again it must be remembered that this is reliant on trends in infection reduction, National and State regulations/restrictions, effective suppression and vaccine development continuing in a positive direction as is currently evident. Should there be a change in any of these circumstances, the ANSDC Board reserves the right to revisit the scheduling decisions based on the health and safety of dancers.

One thing learned this past year is that our plans for the future must now include consideration for the possibility that a National could be cancelled or postponed in cases of emergency such as we have experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic. Decisions such as were made this year may unfortunately cause disappointment and inconvenience but the health and safety of our dancers is our major concern, with equal emphasis on the wellbeing of those volunteers who devote years of their lives into organising a National only to have it cancelled or postponed. 

More information will be released by those committees in due course as they again focus on their plans to bring you the best dance experience possible.
