North Texas Traditional Dance Society

Based in Dallas, Texas, NTTDS promotes understanding and appreciation of American folk dancing, its music, its history, and related folklore. We are a group affiliate of the Country Dance and Song Society.

We're starting to think about dancing again!
We need a new hall, so that could mean new days and times also. We have created a survey to get your preferences for when and where to dance. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey

Because of the coronavirus restrictions, all of our dances are CANCELLED until further notice.
The election of officers normally scheduled for Dec 2020 has been postponed until we can meet in person for an election. The 2020 officers will continue in their current roles until the new election.

A big THANK YOU to all who participated in North Texas Giving Day 2020. Over 3,200 North Texas nonprofits received over 197,000 donations totaling over $58 million! NTTDS received 8 donations totaling $341 (before any bonuses and fees). We certainly appreciate your support.
