"Why do we dance? Because it satisfies our need to express rhythm, to move to music, to be free. Why do we square dance? To be with other people, to play as a group, to cooperate in a pleasure filled pastime. Because it is possible for us to enjoy, often as a couple, a wholesome activity. We are a generation Square Dance at ESRDC of spectators. We sit and watch football or baseball. We watch T.V. and motion pictures. In all of these things we derive our pleasure as spectators. In square dancing we are the doers." .....Square Dancing, 1972 (Author unknown).

Square Dancing is also good exercise. It is relaxing and a great way to meet and socialize with a group of warm friendly people. It reduces stress, because one must concentrate on the calls, one cannot worry. Square dancing is fun! Whether you have a dance partner or not, you will be welcome here.
