Dancers range from beginners to those with many years of experience. Everyone dances together in a welcoming and supportive social environment. It's a non-competitive, inclusive activity.
Square dancing has a wide variety of health benefits and can help you stay active longer, both mentally and physically. Since you're on your feet, square dancing, which is a low impact exercise, helps to strengthen bones. Along with this comes cardiovascular conditioning which in turn can help lower blood pressure. Without even noticing it, you can walk 3 to 4 miles while dancing and burn 300 to 800 calories.
Who knew exercise could be so fun?
Dancing is companionship set to music. It's a safe way to get out and try something new. Square dancing is a great way to meet new friends, while you move to the music in a smoke-, drug- and alcohol-free environment.
