We are Round Dance Teachers, primarily but not exclusively from the state of Oregon. If you are interested in joining us, just visit the How to Join section and we'll get you going.

The Oregon Round Dance Teachers Association (ORDTA) is a non-area member of the Oregon Federation of Square and Round Dance Clubs. The ORDTA Chairperson is accorded a place with the other appointed officers and is afforded the opportunity to make a report at State Federation meetings. ORDTA does not have a vote at State Federation meetings.

Communication is primarily by e-mail. If you are a member and are not receiving e-mails from us, send an e-mail to our Secretary (Cheryl & Geoffrey Manley) to get on the e-mail list.
