It’s FUN for all ages - Children too, so long as they are old enough to stay up
until around 10 in the evening.
It is good gentle physical and mental EXERCISE. An evening’s dancing is about the
equivalent of a 3 mile brisk walk, and the mental stimulation is even more beneficial.
It is INEXPENSIVE, an evening’s dancing at a local Club costing three pounds
(and that includes coffee / tea and biscuits!).
FRIENDSHIP: Because Square Dancing is done in groups of eight, with four couples,
sharing the same music and movements, friendships develop rapidly.
Although Square Dancing is a relaxing activity, when you can ‘chill out’ and leave
all the day’s problems behind you, it also offers the CHALLENGE of moving in
response to the Caller and in time to the music and flow of the dance.
