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.
New Admission Policy: Pay What You Can. Starting in May 2023, we are encouraging dancers to pay a little extra, as able, to help cover expenses for our bands, callers, and dance halls. Suggested amounts are: $10 for adults, $5 for children and students, $25 for a family. NTTDS members are welcome to pay less. Any additional donations are greatly appreciated.
