Many Good Reasons to Dance………..

Dancing is not something that can be explained in words. It has to be danced

Dancing makes me happy

There are said to be several short cuts to happiness, but dancing is definitely one of them

Dancing exercises the mind…square dance especially (See Health Benefits)

Emotional Health

“While I dance, I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life. I can only be joyful and whole. This is why I dance”        Hans Bos

“If you cannot get rid of the skeletons in your closet, you’d best teach it to dance”             George Bernard Shaw

We dance to express ourselves

Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion. Dance is used to communicate between body and soul, to express what is too deep to express in words. In square dancing, you do not need gracefulness. It is no excuse to say you have two left feet, just come, relax, get involved with a bit of passion and become a great square dancer…

Dancing makes you a more interesting person

Dancing insists we take up space, and though it has no set direction, we go there together. Dance is dangerous, joyous, disruptive, and contagious. Dance joins us and pushes us to go further


Dancing enables you to live in the moment, overcome shyness or nervousness.
