Who we are
The Karolína Square Dance Club was founded in 1990 and has been operating as a civic association since 1994.
We promote, dance, and teach square dance and round dance, which helps us establish contacts and friendships with other similar clubs in Slovakia and abroad. The club is based in Bratislava, where we organize weekly dance club evenings. Over the years, hundreds of dancers have danced with us, many of whom have stayed with the club for a long time and formed lifelong friendships.
Currently, around thirty active members from Slovakia and Austria dance at Karolína Bratislava, and we have a wide support base in addition to them.
