Benefits of Square Dancing

Cardiovascular Fitness- Dancing is a safe way to exercise. The moves are interesting, but the level of exertion is up to each participant. Rev up for a high intensity workout or take it slow and easy for a relaxing yet beneficial workout. Dancing regularly can lead to a slower heart rate, lower blood pressure, and an improved cholesterol profile.

Healthy Environment- Square Dancing clubs are smoke and alcohol free. This allows the participants to concentrate on the calls and socialize in a safe environment.

Body and Brain Boost- Square dancers react to the calls as they are given. This forces the body and brain to be tightly coordinated. A number of calls are memorized which helps keep the mind sharp.

Calorie Burn- Dancing burns between 200 and 400 calories in thirty minutes of dancing- that's equivalent to walking, swimming, or riding a bike.

Distance- The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports recommends 10,000 steps per day to maintain physical fitness. It is estimated that a typical dancer can expect to clock 9,000 to 10,000 steps per dance.

Sturdy bones- The side-to-side movements of dancing strengthen weight-bearing bones (tibia, fibula, and femur), and help prevent and slow the loss of bone mass.

Rehabilitation- Square Dancing is a great way to get back in the swing of things if you are recovering from an injury. Dancing keeps your joints moving and is a nice alternative to jogging or other high-intensity activities.

Social Aspects- You never know who you're going to meet on the dance floor. Lifetime friendships are formed and some even meet the love of their life.

"Regular exercise can increase self-confidence and lower the symptoms associated with mild depression and anxiety. Exercise also can improve your sleep, which is often disrupted by stress, depression, and anxiety. All this can ease your stress levels and give you a sense of command over your body and your life." - Mayo Clinic
