Did you know ???

September is International Square Dance Month?

  Did you know that September was International Square Dance Month? Yep, you read that right. There’s actually a month designated to celebrate a little Dosado. Who knew?

  So, you may be thinking this has absolutely nothing to do with you. And that’s totally realistic. You don’t exactly see very many square-dancing songs on MTV these days, although there are MTV songs that are used for square dancing. It would be fun to watch a square-dance act sweep Dancing with the Stars or Americas’ Got Talent. Just saying.

  Think about it for a minute. Have you ever seen a square dancer frowning? Square dancers are always smiling! Even if square dancing isn’t your cup of tea, you have to admit these folks do look like they are having a pretty good time.

MAYBE, square dancers are on to something. Seriously, who couldn’t use another reason to smile? But there has to be more to it than that. It’s very doubtful that there’s this magical, smile-inducing force field that overtakes folks when they step onto the dance floor.

  Because your friends and family care about you, we’ve decided to dig into this a bit more. Did you know that there are actually health benefits to square dancing? We’ve come up with 5 reasons why we think you should go square dance.

  Say, “Cheese!”

As mentioned earlier, square dancing makes you smile. And smiling makes you feel happier and look younger and more attractive. Here’s a little secret just between us…even if you fake a smile, after a while, you’ll actually start to feel happier.

  You’re steppin’!

Square dancing is essentially walking at a steady pace. You can get in about 128 steps a minute with an eight-person dance with music accompaniment. For those of you wearing step counters, that’s about 3,840 steps in 30 minutes!

  Burn, baby, burn.

So obviously, if you’re moving you’re burning calories. On average, one can burn between 200-400 calories in just 30 minutes of square dancing.

  Howdy, Friend.

A typical square dance involves 4 couples. Needless to say, you’ll develop friendships with your dancing partners. The Mayo Clinic says that friendships increase happiness, reduce stress and improve overall self-confidence.

  Becoming Einstein.

While square dancing, your brain is constantly making decisions…what step to make, when to turn, whom to swing. That constant brain activity actually increases your mental capacity. Simply put, square dancing makes you smarter. But an every-once-in-a-while twirl on the dance floor won’t have the same impact as regular toe tapping.

  Maybe it’s time we all gave this thing called square dancing a try. After all, an entire month is devoted to it. So, swing your partner and promenade so fine, come on down to see what you’ll find! Check us out and you’ll find out!
