So... why should you join Square Dancing?

1. It’s FUN!

2. It’s good exercise

3. It’s a county-wide project so you’ll get to meet and make friends with members from other clubs.

4. It’s not limited to 4-H – that means parents, older siblings, and non-4-H friends are welcome and encouraged to come learn, too, making Thursday nights into fun, family outings.

5. It’s a great way to earn valuable record book points. In square dance we do lots of community service, from making Valentine’s to dancing at senior centers; we get communication points for presentations; we earn those rare citizenship points for cultural arts by dancing at fairs and in parades.

Give square dancing a try. You don’t need to buy any special outfits (though you can, if you want). You just need to wear tennis shoes and comfortable clothes you can move around in.
