Square Dancing!
What's the Hype? ...

First, it is not the same type of dance you did in Gym class those many or not so many years ago.
There are many benefits to Square Dancing.

It is easy to learn, which would be a big plus to new dancers and there are programs for those who cannot commit to weekly dances and want to come out and dance occasionally, fun, and it has many health benefits both physical and mental.

Square dancing is much easier than the usual prescribed dance routines, e.g. ballroom or line-dancing because a caller helps the dancers through the steps. The dancers are friendly, eager, ready and willing to assist each other.

It is fun because the music is lively and toe-stomping; it fills the dancers with energy and carefree attitude. There is music to dance to for all tastes from country to rap and in-between. There is also the social aspect of coming out and meeting new people from different walks of life.

There are many health benefits associated with square dancing. Music lifts our spirits and benefits the lasting health of our brains. Movement is great for the body; square dancing is not strenuous and provides cardio strength building. The music, dancing and fun lets one forget they are getting a workout – one’s blood is pumping, arms and feet are moving, fresh air for the lungs and the mind takes a break from daily stresses as the dance steps help keep the mind active.

The dance steps require one to use both sides of the brain. Cross-lateral movements are great exercises for memory and coordination which is important for all ages.

Square dances are normally held in smoke and alcohol free environments. Couples are not required; singles are welcome. School age and up are welcome to join us. Fancy dancing attire is not required. Dancing costs are inexpensive - $4 to $6 per person per dance or class. Where else can you go and spend so little?

Dancing is a great way to meet new people without the need for the ice breaking conversation topics. It is a fun way to hang out with newly found and longtime friends. Square Dancing is found worldwide, and you can dance anywhere in Europe, Asia and America. All the calls are in English – amazing and neat!

In Arizona, like many other states, many have different levels of Square Dancing and instruction. Whether one is new to square dancing, a veteran square dancer new to town or have square danced in the past there are clubs, events and classes available for everyone. Hope to see you across a square soon, dancing and having fun!
