The International Association of Round Dance Teachers, Inc., is also known as ROUNDALAB. We serve as a platform for the dissemination of information pertinent to the round dance activity. ROUNDALAB focuses on education for dance leaders through a comprehensive educational program. ROUNDALAB works to educate leaders through an annual convention, MINILABS, and sessions conducted at the National Square Dance Convention. MINILABS are held at requested locations throughout the United States and abroad. Some of the materials available for our members include: Teaching Manuals, Guidelines for various aspects of the activity, and descriptions and videos of each of the dance figures in all Phases of Round Dancing. ROUNDALAB also provides a $1,000,000 comprehensive bodily injury and property damage liability insurance policy for all teaching and cueing activities for its United States members. ROUNDALAB has entered into a music performance licensing agreement with BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC to license its members to use copyrighted music at all Round Dance activities. Each year the organization offers a number of scholarships for members interested in attending institutes for Round Dance leaders. For further information, please contact the ROUNDALAB office at
ROUNDALAB offers a number of items (see Catalog) to help both the round dancer and the round dance leader. These items include the ROUNDALAB Phase Manuals, our ROUNDALAB Teaching Videos, and many other items. Our manuals and videos are also both available in a subscription format that allow you to access them from any internet capable device. Anyone interested in this dancing activity should contact the ROUNDALAB Office or a ROUNDALAB member for more information.
