Traditional Dance & Music Society at Northview Center - 2013




Traditional Dance and Music Society of the Ozarks

We're people who love contra and other traditional community dancing, and the live string band music that's driven the dance for centuries.

We're an informal, grass-roots, non-profit group which has been organizing dances in the Springfield area since 1991. We sponsor dances twice a month, take trips to other dance communities, and host SoleFest, an annual gathering for dancers from throughout the Midwest.


We're all volunteers.  We welcome you to be involved: Check out our schedule on our “When” page and join us dancing soon!   See our “What” page to see Tips for New Dancers or see Hospitality Tips for Experienced Dancers or see the Membership page to check out the benefits of joining.

If you'd like to have your name and address added to the email contact list to receive schedule information, please e-mail
