WHAT IS SQUARE DANCING?
LET ME SAY WHAT IT ISN'T!
It is not a shindig in the barn.
We don't dance with hay bales and chicken poop!
There is no hopping, skipping, or jumping--(that's clogging).
There are no elbow hooking--skip around in a circle--turns.
Most square dancers don't wear cowboy hats--unless they are cowboys.
It is not just for retired folks.
It is not what unqualified teachers tried to teach you in P.E. class.
It is not HeeHaw and raw screechy fiddles.
WHAT MODERN WESTERN SQUARE DANCING IS!
Square Dancing is the American Folk Dance of Texas.
It is an activity where husbands and wives can do something together.
It is a family activity where even your children can get involved.
It is a great place for singles to meet.
It gets you off the couch and provides mental and physical exercise.
It is easy to learn, inexpensive, and fun.
The music available ranges from pop, rock, oldies, gospel, to country.
It is a social activity where people of all ages and all walks of life can have fun together.
After a wife encourages her husband to try it--usually it is the husband who keeps them going back.
You can travel all over the world, dance, and make new friends in this activity--the Japanese, German, Swedes, Danes, etc., all call and teach in English.
