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.
