Why not give it a try?!

... for Fun, Friendship, & Fitness

Square dancing is a low-impact exercise

that improves muscle tone, bone density, balance, coordination, & memory skills.

Add to your daily step count

several thousand steps, or

2-3 kilometers per night.

No dance experience or special skills

are required - if you can walk,

you can square dance!

Make new friends! in a welcoming,

healthy social environment while

having a great time.  The companionship

that square dancing offers is a great

antidote to depression & loneliness.

Square dancing is a great way to

Reduce stress!

Singles & couples are all welcome...

"No partner?  No problem!"

Experienced dancers help

"fill out the square".

Casual attire and comfortable footwear

are all you need.
