As the Chairman of the Minnesota Square Dance Callers Association (MSDCA), I would like to welcome you to our web site. Please visit the links at the top of each page for more information about Modern Square Dancing, our members and how to contact them. Our membership covers the entire state of Minnesota and we have a few members living in surrounding states as well.

Our MEMBERS page provides Names, E-mail addresses and Phone numbers for each caller/member Several of our members are hired to call throughout the state and around the entire country as well. Please feel free to contact any of our members for answers to your questions about Modern Square Dancing or to book a dance or party. They can also help you find Modern Square Dance classes you can attend in your area.

Most of our members can teach beginner dancers at your company party, wedding reception, church event, block party, family reunion, or fund raiser. They can also provide dancers for a demonstration at your next event. Please keep in mind that Square Dance clubs book their Callers at least two (2) years in advance, mostly on weekends. This doesn’t mean they are booked every weekend and if they are booked on the date you need a caller they can help you find a caller in your area who can fit the bill. Modern Square Dancing is a fun and inexpensive form of entertainment done in over sixty (60) Countries throughout the world. Instructions are fun and easy to follow. An MSDCA Caller coming to your event will turn a non-dancer into a smiling Modern Square Dancer in a very short time. Our members provide all the sound equipment, microphones, music, and the teaching expertise needed for a fun filled event. We use music ranging from Golden oldies, Old Time, Rock and Roll, Dixieland, Show Tunes, Country, to the songs you are hearing on the radio today. They have something for all ages and can teach Square Dancing as well as Line Dances, Circle Dances, Contras and Mixers so that no one will feel left out.

If you are already a Modern Square Dancer planning a visit to Minnesota this site can help you find a caller in the area you plan to visit. They in turn can help you find a dance during your stay. Most clubs in this area hold their dances from September thru May but there are many dances in the Summer months that include fairs, parades and other community celebrations. Our State Convention is also held the second weekend each June. Whether you are a Square Dancer or not please come and enjoy the hospitality in the land of 10,000 Lakes.

Thank you for visiting our web site.
