 ABOUT CPSD


  WHAT  

The Committee to Promote Square Dancing (CPSD) is a   501(C)(3)  charity that was founded in 1999 to  increase community awareness of the social and health benefits of square dancing. The charity actively promotes activities dedicated to the expansion and preservation of square dancing.


   WHY   

Square Dancing offers physical & mental stimulation and a large circle of friends who share your interests.

Most health advice includes the suggestion to add just what square dancing provides so we think that you will enjoy tremendous benefit from giving our activity a try!

Square Dancing provides light aerobic exercise in an environment where you meet lots of friendly people. You might end up meeting your next best friends! The mental exercise of learning the calls and training yourself to respond quickly while working as a team with the other people in your square makes this activity just what the doctor ordered!

And most importantly

SQUARE DANCING IS
 LOTS OF FUN!



   MISSION  

The mission of CPSD is to get the word out that Square Dancing continues to be a wonderful activity that fulfills the social and physical needs of its participants. To this end the CPSD 
offers low-cost classes that are open to everyone in  the community as well as caller scholarships and a new caller practice support group.


  YOU CAN HELP 

The CPSD welcomes any and all proposals from both clubs and callers to promote square dancing.   Also the CPSD may be able to use its members' efforts and its non-profit status to lower costs.  So please consider joining CPSD or forming a CPSD-like organization in your area.
