Description:

What is it?

It’s a party – Square dancing is party time every time you do it. Square Dancing brings people together for fun and friendship. The fun starts on the very first night.

It’s modern – The music we use is everything from country and western and all-time standards to modern pop.

It keeps you fit – Square Dancing is the perfect exercise. It combines all the positive aspects of physical exercise with none of the negative elements. It is low impact activity requiring constant movement and directional changes that keep the body in shape.

It keeps you healthy – As with all regular exercise, square dancing can lead to slower heart rate, lower blood pressure and improved cholesterol profile. The movements of many square dances can strengthen your weight-bearing bones. It is a positive alternative to aerobics or jogging when recovering from illness. Above all it is good fun- we laugh a lot, which is the best medicine of all.

It burns off calories – During an hour of dancing you can burn between 400 and 800.

It’s a mental challenge - Reacting quickly to the square dance caller keeps you mentally on your toes. Whilst concentrating on the moves you escape from your worries and pressures.

It’s teamwork – Your team of eight dancers depend on each other to keep the dance moving.

It’s sociable – Square dancing contains a social component that solitary fitness endeavours do not. It is very tactile and friendly which contributes to self esteem and a positive outlook.
