Today's Square Dancing
Modern Western Square Dance is the ideal recreation for active people of all ages. It provides endless hours of fun, entertainment. and both mind and body fitness, along with a community of friends.
A group of dance steps, referred to as calls, are taught. These are used to form an endless variety of dances. Each dance is done in a group of eight persons, who form a square (two people on each of the four sides). The Caller (dance instructor) creates and directs the dance using the calls that were taught.
Music choices include new and old country, rock, pop, salsa, easy listening, show tunes and classical - everything and anything with a strong beat.

Dress is casual. Wear comfortable, indoor shoes suitable for a gym floor.

"When we were new in town, it was an easy way to meet people. We made lifelong friends and are still dancing 20 years later."
"It's my stress reliever. Any worries I have disappear while I'm dancing, and I always leave smiling."

"It's the perfect night out - great exercise, brain gym, fun people and easy on the wallet."
"This is a workout I actually enjoy! It's so much fun, and I'm friends with some of the nicest people I've ever met. I look forward to dancing every week."
