47th Nebraska Square and Round Dance Weekend

September 15, 2017 - September 16, 2017

Each year dancers from a 6 state area gather in Hastings. This year National Caller Jerry Story will be the featured caller with callers and round dance cuers from around Nebraska joining in to provide the music and movements on three dance floors.
The theme for the 2017 weekend is HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEBRASKA. There will be historical displays, birthday cake and ice cream with birthday decorations throughout the facility.

The dance Friday is 7:30-10:30. Saturday dancing is all day with meal breaks. The evening ends at 10:30 with an after party. Spectators are always welcome and may even find themselves in a square to try square dancing.

Modern square dancing has been in Nebraska since 1950. The peak of popularity occurred in the 70s when almost every town had a square dance club;  some large cities had 10 to 15 clubs. A person could dance any night of the week and not travel more than 30 minutes.
