History of National Smooth Dancers
Non-Profit Organization 501-C-7
In 1937 The National Smooth Dancers (NSD as it is sometimes referred to) was first organized in Los Angeles. The jitterbug craze had stirred up much interest in dancing across the nation.
In 1942 the club was disbanded due to World War II, but was reorganized in 1947.
In 1949 the San Diego Chapter formed and in the years to follow NSD grew to 14 Chapters. Currently there are a total of 8 Chapters.
In 1964 the Bakersfield Chapter was charted.
