Welcome to the 2020 New England Square Dance Convention!

In Memory of our Chairman Jim DeNigris

On September 21, 2019 Jim DeNigris unexpectedly passed away. Jim passed away doing what he loved the most, calling a dance.   As an organizer and General Chairman of the 62nd and 63rd NES&RD convention, he will be sadly missed. He was a moving force in the organizing of this event.  

Our prayers are with Jim and Jim’s family.

Greetings from our Chairman

We wish to welcome all of our dancers to the 62nd and 63rd New England Square and Round Dance Convention to be held at the Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis.  This is the first time our Convention has ever been held on the Cape, and the Resort and Conference Center is a beautiful venue.  Large halls for plenty of dancing room, and 5 of the halls are on the same floor, and one hall is upstairs, elevator available.

The Resort has its own 18 hole Par Three Golf Course, indoor pool, health and fitness center and “Spa at Atlantis”.  There are 232 deluxe guestrooms, plus 2 restaurants on premise.  We are in walking distance to downtown shops on Main St, many other restaurants and the Kennedy Museum.

We will be offering all levels of dancing, Mainstream through C-1, and round dancing in the Mainstream and Plus Halls, plus a full time round dance hall.

For all of you Advanced and Challenge dancers, we will offer a FULL time A1, A2 and C1 hall.

We have negotiated special rates for the weekend at the Resort and at the Best Western which is a short 2.7 mile drive. Once you have registered for the convention and received your “dancer registration number” you can call the hotel and book your room.

We look forward to see you all, so “Let’s Make It A Date, and We’ll Dance On The Cape”.

Sandi Silva & Jim DeNigris
General Chairman
62nd & 63rd NESRDC
