Square Dance Foundation of New England

The Square Dance Foundation of New England (SDFNE) was founded in 1973 by caller and editor of The New England Square Dance Caller Magazine, Charlie Baldwin, and his wife Bertha. It has a membership of individuals, clubs, and organizations who continue the legacy of traditional, ethnic and social dance and who promote the preservation of dance history and memorabilia in a central archive, consisting of collections from personal clubs and organizations involved in social dance.

Selected materials from the SDFNE library have been donated to the New Hampshire Library of Traditional Music and Dance to make them more available to researchers interested in the history of square, round, and folk dancing.
