It keeps you fit
Perfect regular exercise to keep you in shape. A low impact activity requiring constant movement and directional changes. A fun way to burn off the calories - during an hour of dancing you can use between 400 and 800 calories.
During an evening's dance you are guaranteed to fulfil a large chunk of your 10,000 steps target for the day.
Enjoy dancing from the first night onwards. It brings people together for fun and friendship. We laugh a lot, the best medicine of all.
It's a mental challenge
- It's very easy to pick up the basic moves and you are learning all the time. Reacting quickly to the caller keeps you mentally on your toes.
- With regular attendance your dancing will become almost second nature like walking or running. There is no obligation to move to a higher programme, but by invitation, you can, should you wish to continue to learn more.
SOCIAL SQUARE DANCING BEGINNERS CLASSES START:
It's for everyone
Whether you are single or a couple, it doesn't matter and it's suitable for ages 14 to 80.
It's good music
We dance to a whole range of music from pop to all-time favourites. Listen to good singing at the same time
Four couples form a square and dance a pattern of moves sung by the caller. We depend on each other to keep the dance moving.
The club organises some social events. We sometimes hold fundraising events to raise money for charities.
