Here is what the club has to say about square dancing:
Modern Square Dancing is probably not the same dance you remember from your early school years. It consists of 68 moves that a caller will combine into different sequences. At a dance a caller calls two dances in a “tip” . Generally the first dance is a patter call where the caller announces the moves over a sound track – keeping the dancers flowing from one move to the next. The second dance of a tip is a singing call where the caller announces the moves while singing a song.
The music of Modern Square Dancing is wide and varied, anywhere from the marches of John Philip Sousa to current releases, in the form of rock & roll, western, jazz, big band, musicals and more.
The University of Washington School of Medicine wrote that square dancing is a good physical activity and keeps you and your brain healthy.
