Welcome to the online home of Belles Run Philadelphia 2019. Hosted by Dance for Independence, Inc.
Belles Run will be the 36th annual convention of the IAGSDC. The local IAGSDC club is Independence Squares.

Dancing will begin with a full day of dancing on Wednesday, July 3, 2019. In the morning, there will be the Gay Callers School Dance and a multi-hall GCA dance in the afternoon. That evening the traditional convention gathering, the Trail's End Dance, will once again benefit All Join Hands.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to Philadelphia and are planning a convention you won't soon forget. Philadephia2019.com will be your go-to place for news and information about the convention. New information will be posted as it becomes available.
