Its state-of-the-art Jackson Convention Complex, nearby hotels and hundreds of restaurants serving delectable southern dishes make it a great national square dance convention destination. Known as The City with Soul, it also offers easy accessibility, great music, fascinating museums, historical landmarks, and a lot more.
Kickoff Dance IN March
The Pre-Convention Kickoff Dance is scheduled for March 28, 2020. And, it's free if you are registered for the convention! Dance to Justin Russell, Travis Cook, Rob Baird and Tim Eum.
There's Time to Learn Square Dancing Before the Convention
Square dancers today dance basic, plus and challenge steps to everything from Golden Oldies to Elvis to current hits. There are exciting new patterns, unique calls, and varied dance locations from school halls to hotel and conference centers to resorts and even cruise ships! It's not your grandparents' square dancing any more.
What remains the same is the fun and friendship people from all walks of life enjoy when they get together to dance. It's a great way meet new people and make new friends whether dancing at your own club or one you visit. Square dancing is a party every time—even when just learning how to dance.
