CRDA was founded 7 May 1961 under the guidance of Jack & Darlene Chafee, Art & Hermina Slack, and the Kansas & Missouri Round Dance Associations with 68 charter members. On 27 May 1961 CRDA held its first organizational meeting. At this meeting, the By-Laws and the Constitution were approved, and the first members of the Board of Directors were selected. 20 June 1961 marked the first publication of the newsletter, and by then the membership had increased to 80 couples.


Since these first formative years, CRDA has enjoyed a continuing success. Many activities are sponsored by CRDA each year, including an October Gala weekend, a spring graduation dance, an intermediate Midwinter's Dream dance, monthly fun dances throughout the year, the top-rated website, and our Round Notes newsletter.


CRDA is staffed by dancers and instructors who make contributions of their time, energy, knowledge, and skill. CRDA is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of 9 couples elected from the general membership.

The CRDA website began in 1989 as a Geocities site. It was moved to its own domain,, in 2000. The site has grown over the years to provide a wide variety of information, including: state-wide CRDA classes & clubs, CRDA Gala and other sponsored dances, CRDA Hall Of Fame listing, past Rounds of the Month & Classics of the Quarter, contact information, and links to definitions of Round Dancing, histories of dance, places to dance in the USA and around the world, resources on how to dance better, cue sheets, music, & dance shoes. Terri Cantrell originated, developed, and maintained the site from 1989 to 2013. Send your current updates and corrections to Harold Sears at harold at rounddancing dot net.


CRDA members receive a substantial discount at CRDA events.


CRDA sponsors a variety of special dance events each year: Fun Dances throughout the year, a Spring Beginner Graduation Dance, an intermediate celebration, currently Midwinter's Dream, regional dance parties, and the Annual Round Dance Gala.


The Gala features an enjoyable weekend of teaches, clinics, and dancing, for all levels of Round Dancer (phase II VI / beginner advanced). Nationally prominent guest instructors are hired, and local cuers/instructors lend their expertise.
