Youth

The California Square Dance Council encourages its Affiliates and member clubs to provide dancing opportunities for dancers of all ages. Many clubs that are primarily organized for adults also welcome teenagers and younger children into their regular activities. Many events offer special pricing for youth dancers (usually up to age 18).

Other clubs specialize in providing an environment focused on the interests of kids and their families. Festivals sponsored by some of our Affiliates offer sessions intended specifically to appeal to young dancers.

Youth Scholarship Program

The California Square Dance Council offers an educational scholarship for youth square dancers (up to age 21) who are pursuing post-secondary education. Applicants must have been members for at least one year of one of our Affiliate member clubs. More than one scholarship may be awarded, and the scholarship amount may be up to $750. For details, see the Application Form (PDF).
