What is FUN about square dancing?

Square dance benefits include such things as physical and mental health. Does your doctor tell you to get more exercise? Try square dancing.

Do you want to make new friends? Try square dancing.

Are you young at heart, old, married, single, or divorced and want new excitement? Try square dancing.

Modern square dancing is dancing to a specified set of directions that are called to music. Dances are held in schools, church or community centers where non-alcoholic refreshments are served. Square dance calls are in English and are standard throughout the world in Europe, Asia, Australia, Japan and New Zealand as well as in all 50 states of the USA and Canada.

Square dancing is "exercise to music" and can help keep muscles and joints moving, which is a great way to dance away soreness. People can square dance regardless of their health. People with hip and knee replacements, with heart problems, and those missing a limb can still square dance.
Just ask your doctor first (semi legal bit in small print)

Square dancing increases mental alertness because dancers never know the order of the calls and must listen as the callers' commands. Square dancing is eight people working together and having fun to keep the square going. Of utmost importance, square dancing is a fun.

Square dancing is FUN and friendship set to music.
