About Country Dance and Song Society

On March 23, 1915, a group of Americans, inspired by the work of England’s eminent folk scholar Cecil Sharp, met and formed the United States Branch of the English Folk Dance Society. Soon centers affiliated with the original U.S. Branch opened in Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and New York City. In 1940, the Country Dance Society, a successor of the U.S. Branch of the EFDS, was incorporated as an educational, non-profit organization. CDS later reincorporated as what is now known as the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS).

Through its resources and programs, CDSS celebrates and preserves traditional forms of English and Anglo-American dance, music, and song. It both promots their new expression and connects people who share an interest in these traditions.

Since 1915 CDSS and its affiliates have sponsored a variety of folk music and dance participatory events and educational programs. Summer residential programs for adults and families are held at Pinewoods Camp (MA), Buffalo Gap (WV) and Ogontz (NH). CDSS also offers developmental courses for musicians, dance callers, and dance organizers and offers training sessions for teachers interested in incorporating traditional music, dance, and song into the classroom. A small loans and grants program offers support to individuals and groups in projects related to our mission.

CDSS publishes books related to folk dance and song, produces recordings, prints a bi-monthly newsletter, and operates a mail order business and a small store at its headquarters in Haydenville, Massachusetts. For a number of years, CDSS also functioned as a research library and center for materials on folk dance and song. These resources are now maintained as part of the New Hampshire Library of Traditional Music and Dance housed at the University of New Hampshire.
