About Us

The South Australian Square Dance Society Inc.

The society is a recognised incorporated body, and is therefore responsible to the Government and other legal bodies for all actions of the committee and members.

It has a registration number, which means it can be investigated by individuals for any possible reason - thus shifting responsibility from any one individual.

In any dealings with government departments or organisations such as Foundation SA etc, a Society has a greater voice than an individual.
