The Palomar Square Dance Association (PSDA) is a non-profit, tax exempt organization of clubs who enjoy Modern Western Square Dancing.  The PSDA is located in North San Diego County, California.  At the present time, the PSDA consists of eight Square Dance Clubs.  Our member clubs hold Plus Level dances in Escondido, Rancho Penaquitos, San Marcos, Solana Beach, Temecula and Vista.  They also conduct new dancer classes in Encinitas, Escondido, Rancho Penaquitos and Sunday of each month in Vista, and Plus Level dances on the Fifth Saturday when one occurs.  The schedules of dances and classes are available by clicking on the various links on this website, or by using our interactive calendar.  For 59 years, PSDA sponsored the Jamboree By the Sea, a gala three day festival at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on the first full weekend in February each year.  In 2009, due to rising costs and declining attendance, the Jamboree was replaced by an Anniversary Dance, which will be held early in each year.

The purpose of the PSDA, as defined in the Bylaws is:
to promote Square, Round and Clog Dancing as an activity for the personal contact, co-mingling, and fellowship of its members,
to encourage a high standard for Square, Round and Clog Dancing,
to encourage new dancers and new clubs,
to exchange information between individual dancers, callers, clubs and associations,
to promote special events which shall benefit its membership,
to assist the affiliates in whatever way possible, and
to represent Square, Round and Clog Dancing to the general public as a wholesome, enjoyable type of recreation.

PSDA also provides insurance for our dancers and liability insurance for our member club's dancing venues.

The PSDA is a member of the California Square Dance Council, Inc. and the United Square Dancers of America.  PSDA cooperates with the Back Country Square Dance Association and the San Diego Square Dance Association for the betterment of square dancing in San Diego County.
