New!  Square Dancing

Inline image

Live lively-Square dance! That’s the slogan of Modern Western Square Dancing today. Square dancing is a great way to get your daily dose of exercise. It also helps keep your mind sharp remembering all the calls used to direct the dancing. Another benefit of square dancing is the social interaction. It has been said that square dancing is friendship set to music. It can take your mind off of day to day worries.  People of all ages can learn. Square dancing is not as hard as it may look. The calls are learned one move at a time and are constantly reviewed. The music used today is both modern and traditional.  So, what’s stopping you? Live Lively-Square Dance!

All ages and skill level welcome!
