YSDC Council Information
Our Council is an educational, non-profit organization for the promotion of Square Dancing, Round Dancing, Contra Dancing, and related folk dance instruction in the Eastern Montana - Northern Wyoming areas. Currently, we have three Square Dance Clubs, one Round Dance Club, and one Contra Dance group located in the Billings area. All of the clubs dance from mid-September to mid-May.
The Yellowstone Square Dance Council got its start in 1952 when dancers and clubs had become so numerous in Billings that coordination and organization were needed.
YSDC clears dates for council and club sponsored square dances, establishes policy in the Billings area, promotes square dancing, and encourages square dance, round dance, and contra dance activities in the area.
A newsletter, the Grapevine, is published monthly and features articles from each club and upcoming events. In addition, a Facebook page has been created with up-to-date information on all of our dance activities. Look for the Facebook icon at the bottom of any page.
Many of the clubs located in Billings now dance at Cedar Hall which is located at MetraPark Fairgrounds. Cedar Hall was remodeled by the Council in 1985 and features a professional wood dance floor, kitchen, and air conditioning
