Pennsylvania Square & Round Dance Federation

Why We Square Dance

Many clubs have beginner dances.  Most square dance lessons start in September but some start at other times of year.  Click on the Member Organizations page and click on the Organization covering your area. You can find the club nearest you and call the contact number to find out when lessons will begin in your area.

There are many reasons why we  go to Modern Western square dances. A few are:

Square dancers add their own special moves and sound effects to make the dancing more exciting. When dancing, you forget your daily worries and just concentrate on the dancing.

Square dancers walk an average of 5 miles during a two-hour dance. What a great way to get exercise without really trying!

Square dancing can lead to a slower heart rate, lower blood pressure, and improved cholesterol profile. Dancing strengthens weight-bearing bones and may help prevent or slow down loss of bone mass (osteoporosis). 

Calories - Dancing burns between 200 and 400 calories every 30 minutes of dancing.

You meet a whole set of friendly people from all walks of life in a non stressful environment.

It costs about $6.00/person for each 2 1/2 hour dance. Much less than going out to eat or to a movie.

Why not join us.  Contact a person from a Modern Western Square or Round Dance club in your area and find out how!
