Unfortunately, last minute changes to scheduled dances do sometimes occur. That's why no matter whether you dance to a local club, or travel a good distance to a dance, it is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED that you contact the person listed BEFORE TRAVELING to a dance. Clubs sometimes CHANGE their location, or CANCEL their dance that day, for various reasons (weather, etc.), hall conflicts/issues, holidays, or for other clubs Special Dances.

It can be VERY FRUSTRATING after driving a long distance to find that a club is ''dark'' (not dancing)...especially with the price of gasoline nowadays!! It's better to be safe than sorry, by calling ahead before you travel. This is especially true when severe weather (thunderstorms, tornadoes, flooding), or winter weather (snow, ice, etc.) affects an area. For Arkansas weather information, click here.

Besides the club contact, you can also check the I Drive Arkansas website. For weather related road conditions, please call either (501) 569-2374 (in the Little Rock Metro Area), or Toll Free at (800) 245-1672.

Note that clubs that are normally scheduled to dance on various holidays...such as Easter Weekend, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, or New Years Day, may be CANCELLED. The exception would be for clubs that have a New Years Eve Evening Special Dance, as they have in central Arkansas in years past.

If your club has to make a last minute change or cancellation...either in a regular dance, or a special dance...please contact me via this link, or via the ASSDF Officers Page. A contact person will be listed for any updates...such as if a dance is rescheduled, plus any comments, if applicable.

Lastly, some clubs will dance in casual attire during the summer months, to better cope with the hot weather...check with the club contact for information.

Dance Cancellations


Note that various clubs may be DARK (not dancing) for the Christmas, New Years, and other holidays during the year...as well as for the yearly ASSDF Fall Festival in October. Please check with the various clubs and contacts, for more information.

Arkansas can have episodes of severe weather, including tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds, and flash flooding...on occur any day of the year, at any time of the day or night. Plus, there is a risk of snow or ice during the winter months.

Please check with the various club contacts before traveling to a dance, to be sure that you don't ''waste a trip''. It's not worth risking your life due to hazardous weather, and road conditions...especially if there are areas of significant storm damage, flooding, or snow/ice along your travel route.

Clubs That Have Disbanded


One always hates to note this, but some clubs have had to disband, due to a lack of membership, loss of dance facilities, etc. While clubs that have disbanded will be REMOVED IMMEDIATELY from the clubs page, the information will remain on this page for approximately 90 days (3 months) after the Webmaster has been made aware of such; but it's immediately placed here.

No disbanded clubs that I know of, since July, 2018.
