Who Are We? South Shore Dancers is a Norwell, Massachusetts based social ballroom dance club, organized to provide dancing opportunities of a high quality to its Members and the public. We believe that ballroom dancing provides its participants with all of the elements of a great hobby. It has room for those who get out once in a while to do a bit of dancing and socializing and for those whose passion for dance takes them to ever-higher levels of performance. It provides physical and mental challenge in a social context, unlike hobbies that are enjoyed in relative isolation. The Club sponsors dances and contributes its energy to promote the enjoyment of ballroom dancing.

|The End of an Era|
Since the fall of 1996, SSD has hosted over 600 Friday night dances at Norwell's First Parish Church.
Attendance was about right for the space for most of that time. For the last two years, however,
it has dropped off, averaging in the low teens but sometimes even less. Efforts to stimulate interest
by altering the format and starting earlier have not made a difference. So it was that, with
some sadness, the Directors decided to suspend the program.
It was decided to continue holding the dances for another six weeks to allow time to get the word out and to give folks with advance purchase tickets the opportunity to use up their credits. Any unused credits after the last dance on March 6th may be applied toward admission to Saturday night dances between now and the June 13th dance (the end of our fiscal year.)
Please come join us for our 'farewell tour' every Friday until March 6th. We thank all of you who have supported and, hopefully enjoyed, the dances. We will evaluate results along with comments and suggestions over the coming weeks and measure the potential for a rebirth of the project in the future.
