Exhibition Team or Performance Team groups were not uncommon in the early days of the IAGSDC, though no regularly organized ones exist today (2010).
- The original Foggy City Squares had an exhibition group.
- Foggy City Dancers had the Foggy City Performance Team.
- Gold Rush was a performance team in San Francisco.
- Puddletown Squares also had an exhibition group.
- Sun Coast Wranglers had an exhibition team (were they a full club or just a performance group?)
- Fistful of Crinolines was a drag / performance group in Seattle.
- others ???
Early IAGSDC conventions often had scheduled times for performances, and these square dance groups would put on specially rehearsed and choreographed numbers. There was some debate about how much time should be allotted to this part of the schedule.
Some of these groups also performed at gay rodeos, fund raisers, and other GLBT events.
