LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE
Bow to your partner, bow to your corner, circle left, allemande left....swing and promenade home.
Those are some of the calls that will get you on your feet to a more active and healthy life style.
With all its moving, twisting and turning, square dancing provides more than the daily dose of heart and bone healthy physical activity. Remembering all the calls -- from "do-si-do" to "Allemande" -- keeps the mind sharp, potentially staving off age-related memory loss. The companionship that regular square dancing offers is an antidote to depression and loneliness.
Listening and executing the commands takes deep concentration. The twisting and turning are not hard on you, but give your body the exercise that it needs.
It's just so much fun. Square dancing is setting friendship to music. It's having a place to get up and go in the evening. Square dancing contributes to a more healthy and independent lifestyle. Anything that keeps you active will keep you healthier and feeling younger. If you can walk, you can square dance.
The physical benefits of square dancing are impressive, but don't discount the social payoff. Square dancing is kind of unique in the it involves touching hands; we turn, we swing and that seems to bring us closer together. The touching in itself can be beneficial to health. Regular touching can reduce stress and depression and enhance immune system function. It takes your mind off of the day to day problems.
Please consider joining us. It certainly beats walking on a treadmill all by yourself!
