Showcase of Ideas

Does your organization have some great ideas for promoting our square dance activity?
Have you tried some creative marketing strategies?
Do you have a unique or fun process for promoting travel and visitations between clubs and among different associations?
Have you done public demonstrations or exhibition dances to showcase our activity?
Are you engaged in special social events or community service projects?
Or would you like to gather ideas from other organizations?

The Showcase of Ideas is the place for you to share and to learn!

WHO can participate?

Any local, regional, state, or national dance organization.

WHAT is it?

A place for dance organizations to put up displays and share materials illustrating how the organization promotes and supports our favorite pastime! Some organizations add “give-away” items such as stickers or pins to promote their area or their organization.

WHY have it?

Dancers, clubs, and dance organizations are always looking for new ideas to promote our activity as well as invite others to visit their area and enjoy a dance.

WHEN does it happen?

The Showcase of Ideas is open for visitors all day on Thursday and Friday, and until about 2:00 PM on Saturday. Organizations can check in and set up their displays on Wednesday afternoon.

 WHERE will it be located?

The Showcase of Ideas will be in Ballroom C at the Baird Center.

HOW do we get involved?

Invitation letters were distributed at the 72nd National Square Dance Convention® in Mobile, Alabama in June 2023. If your organization did not pick-up an invitation, or if you have questions or need additional information, contact Marilyn Schmit, Director – Showcase of Ideas, at
