Square Dancing is first and foremost a social activity.  It brings people together not only to dance, but to create relationships, friendships, and often travel together.  It has a long history, not only in the United States, but also around the world.

Our activity groups together 8 dancers, organized into a “square.”  We learn individual movements known as “calls.”  The caller is responsible for choreographing the calls together into sequences to create a dance set to music.

As dancers complete one call they are in position to begin the next.  In effect they are constantly moving to solve a puzzle creating both physical and mental activity.  

At the end of the tip we congratulate our success and mostly laugh when a square “breaks down” and is unable to complete a call. 

It is an atmosphere of fun, laughter, friendship, and support.  Square Dancing is a lot of fun.
