Sqare Dancing

Our workshop starting May 6 has been very popular, and is now filled.
If you are interested in a Round-Dance Beginner's Class, for couples,
please let us know and we will put your contact information on file for any future workshops.

The Mississippi Squares is built on fun and fellowship, with an active community involvement. It is a member of the Eastern Ontario Square and Round Dance Association (EOSARDA). The dance program follows the Modern Western Square Dancing definitions as described by Callerlab at three skill levels: Basic, Mainstream and Plus. This style of dancing is popular worldwide.

The club is very active in dance lessons and the recruitment of new dancers at the basic level. To this end the format on Tuesday nights is one of alternating Basic-Teach, Mainstream-Teach and Full-Mainstream tips. Tuesday dances are always located at Brunton Hall. We regularly have 5 – 6 squares dancing.
Come out for a great evening!

We are based in Carleton Place, Ontario, and draw our membership from the surrounding area including Smiths Falls, Almonte, Carp, Arnprior, Pakenham, Kanata, Stittsville, Richmond, Munster and Lanark.  We are only a short drive from Ottawa.


The immediate integration of new dance classes with the mainstream group has, since its inception, proven to be very beneficial for new dancers.

Dancing at the Plus level is held regularly on Friday evenings with a Full-Plus program and Plus-Teach reviews.

Experienced PLUS dancers enjoy the fast pace of our Full-Plus tips as well as the teching reviews. If you have not danced for a while, you will enjoy the Plus-Teach reviews.
You can call ahead to verify the dance location for the Friday dances, but this is not always necessary.

Are you an active square dancer visiting the Carleton Place or Ottawa area?  We would like to invite you to our square dances and workshops.  See our dance schedule.  Many of our dancers are couples, but you don't need to bring partner.

Our dancers are regular visitors at other clubs in the area.
Up-to-date information about square dancing in the area is at the list of Square Dance Clubs at EOSARDA.
