Welcome to America's best kept secret! What is it? Western Square Dancing! One and one half hours of square dancing equals 30 minutes of aerobics. When you're square dancing you won't think of those everyday problems, or let the work day brain drain bother you while dancing a figure like "Spin Chain and Exchange The Gears". Square dancing keeps the mind active and the body fit without strenuous workouts. You gain endurance and muscle instead of bulk. By combining the mental and physical exercise square dancing offers, it's a win-win situation for you! There's no consumption of alcoholic beverages during Western Square Dances. You can dance any night of the week, anywhere in the WORLD because it's called in the English language only. Learn anywhere and dance anywhere in the world! Square dance festivals and conventions are offered at the local, state, national and international level. You can still leave your valuables unattended at a square dance, a festival or a convention and not fear they'll be stolen. Just ask any of the 21,000 dancers that attended the 43rd National Square Dance convention in Portland, Oregon. As a social mixer it can't be beat! It blends people from all walks of life. You never meet a stranger, you simply make new friends for life. (
