The PSRDF objective is to promote square dancing in Pennsylvania.
We promote an Annual State Convention and are also involved in other promotional projects including PA Square Dance License Plates and attempting to get our State Legislature to put Square Dancing as the PA State Folk Dance. This Web Site is also to aide in finding Square Dance Clubs, Federations and Square Dancers in Pennsylvania.

There is no Pennsylvania State Convention planned for 2017. We encourage all dancers and dance leaders to attend as this meeting will be very important in determining the future of the state federation, and of organized statewide square dancing in Pennsylvania. Very few people attended the last few meetings and due to the urgency of the items to be discussed we want to have as many people from each Federation/Association come and participate. Just in case anyone is uncertain as to who exactly can and should attend the meeting as well as other important items, below we will summarize information from the PSRDF Constitution and Bylaws .
A. Voting Delegates: Each regional organization is entitled to twelve (12) voting delegates. No more than two delegates can be of the caller, cuer, prompter, or related arts discipline. Each non-affiliated club is entitled to have two (2) voting delegates. Neither delegate can be of the caller, cuer, prompter, or related arts discipline. If more than 12 individuals come from any given Federation/Association, the remaining individuals may participate in discussion and sharing of ideas but not have voting privileges.
B. Nomination of Officers: At this meeting we will accept the nomination for officers of the PSRDF. If you are interested in a leadership role please notify Tony & Diana Rock by email (firstname.lastname@example.org ), one of the Federation/Association presidents, or Bill Flick (email@example.com Chairmen of the past presidents committee). Please provide us with your name, position you are interested in being nominated for, and contact information. For more information on the PSRDF Officers’ duties, please see the PSRDF Constitution and Bylaws on our website: www.psrdf.org
Tentative agenda items include: 23rd PSRDF Convention Report, 2017 one day PSRDF Festival, 2018 Convention, continued use of national callers, possibility of a joint convention with West Virginia, nomination of officers, and should the PSRDF continue. If you have any additional items that you wish to have added to the agenda for discussion please email them to me at the address given in letter B above.
