Get away from the Television and exercise your mind and body while making friends and have fun while you do it. Square Dancing is a good way for people of all ages to meet new people. Square Dancing is a team dance of 8 people and if a few positions are needed you could be coaxed out of your chair to complete their square. There is plenty of touching, hugging and exercise, about 6,000 to 7,000 steps, about five miles or 2/3 the daily requirement, in a two hour class. It takes about 9 months to learn all the movements and during that time you are dancing, not with one person but with everyone in the room. After graduating you then will be ready to go to Dances and you will be dancing with 100’s of people from a 30 mile radius. In your daily routine you’ll be greeting people you’ve “danced with” in restaurants, stores and at events. Square Dancing is always taught in English and in your travels throughout the world, a phonebook will lead you to the nearest Dance and new friends.
