Team effort: Check! Contact sport: Check! Coach: Check! Fumbles: Sometimes! Victory: Always! Fun: Check!
The sport of square dancing is indeed a true team effort. A team of eight executes a variety of calls given to them as they dance and sing along. Mistakes sometimes happen, but the fun is correcting them as a team with a laugh to quickly get back in the game. The pride felt by each team member is like winning a trophy and a blue ribbon.
Give square dancing a try! It is not like when you first learned a few steps back in grade school. Modern square dancing is an active walk-about to upbeat music with friends. We are lucky to have a resident who is a professional caller. Many have learned and now enjoy this social experience while staying physically fit and mentally challenged.
Mark your calendars for October 11, a Sunday, at 7:00 p.m. in the MountainView Ballroom for a free introduction to square dancing that you can do without any previous experience. Dress is casual. Singles are partnered up.
