Gloucestershire has Three American Square Dance Clubs:

In Cheltenham, there is just our club, The Cheltenham Swinging Squares.

In Cirencester, there is our neighbouring club, The Corinium Squares

In Thornbury, the Thornbury Squares do not have their own website, but further details can be found in this document.

There are a further three clubs in the Bristol area (see link to a map below).

To the North our nearest neighbour is The Stourbridge Squares (Plus only).

Here is a map showing the location of all BAASDC clubs

The West of England Regional Callers Assembly website has a useful list of all planned dances in the Region.
An interesting site is the one recommended by Ray Curry and produced by an American Club - Saddlebrook Squares in Utah - it has some video teaching pages -  Follow the "Square Dance Lessons" link.
Another interesting site, suggested by Bob Sillitoe is the NorthEast Square Dancers site. This is another American site, but well worth looking at.
