Introduction to Square Dance Lessons

Thursday, September 21, 2017

MODERN SQUARES -- This is not what you think it is. Today's Square Dancing is teamwork. You’re working a real-time puzzle with seven other people. And when you nail the outcome, it’s really quite exhilarating. Square Dancing is not heehaw music, frilly clothes or cowboy shirts. It’s not even dancing. (There’s no artsy self-expression involved.) It’s just walking to music. It’s a little like football, except without the concussions. You’ve got formations. You’ve got a team around you. You’ve got plays sent in by the caller. The challenge is, can you run your route successfully? Now, granted, the team is coed. But that’s a feature. If you enjoyed geometry in high school, you’ll get a kick out of this stuff. The music you walk to is varied, ranging from the Beatles to modern hits. Today’s Square Dancing is great exercise for the body and brain. You’ll walk several miles a night, and your mind will be challenged.
