Live Lively: mentally, physically, socially. 

Square dance is “an activity that brings all ages together.” 

It builds community, gives people the opportunity to make new friends, and exercises both our minds and our bodies. 

Square dancing is a way of connecting with other people — it is face-to-face connecting rather than “online”/digital. That personal contact is something often missing in today’s world.

Are you looking for an alternative to going to the gym? 
Want an activity that you can do with your entire family? 
Want to make some new friends? 
Why not give modern square dancing a try?

We all know that exercise is good for you. Do it now!

Why Square Dance?

Modern Square Dancing can impact and enrich your life in many positive ways!

First, it's fun. The exhilaration of eight people dancing together in quick time for a common purpose is unparalleled. So much in life is serious; Modern Square Dancing is just fun!

• It's sociable. Square dancing involves a social component that independent fitness endeavors do not. Participants are given the opportunity to develop strong social ties that contribute to their self-esteem and a positive outlook. Many people have made life-long friends at square dances.

• It's mentally stimulating. People who start Modern Square Dancing soon realize that it's a "thinking person's activity." The interaction with the caller and the other dancers to complete a movement successfully keeps the mind sharp, focused, and challenged.

• It is an escape from all the worries of the day. Modern Square Dancing is the perfect respite from the anxieties that surround us all. You will find yourself dancing to many different types of popular music, including current rock, jazz, and country & western.

• It's good moderate exercise. In one evening of square dancing a person can walk three to five miles, providing the right amount of movement for many people.

• It's non-competitive. Square dancers dance for the excitement of working through the sequences successfully. There are no "winners/losers/champions," just people having fun!

• It's inexpensive. The cost of an evening of Modern Square Dancing is less than just about any other form of outside entertainment.

• It's an activity the whole family can enjoy. If you have children old enough to follow instructions (usually 10 or older), they can participate right along with the adults. Some areas have groups specially designed for teen and youth dancers.

If you haven't square danced since you were in school, you haven't seen Modern Square Dancing!

A big thanks to Gail Rosenblum for detailing how nostalgia is indeed back in fashion in so many ways.

When she stated that "those who embrace nostalgia tend to be happier than the rest," we knew she was thinking about a team sport that's making a nostalgic comeback: square dancing.

Where else can we smile and be happy for two hours while having the fun our grandparents loved and enjoyed?

 Square dancing's the answer when you're feeling nostalgic or want to be happy and meet new friends.
