Modern Square Dancing why would you do it?

There are lots of reasons, really. Firstly one may think you’re just going to learn some kind of dance. True, but that’s not all. While you learn the steps, you make friends and you become part of an Australian, even worldwide, family. Square Dancing is a very relaxed, sociable activity, there’s always lots of laughter and both the brain and the body get a work out. As in any family all age groups can participate.

Whether you enjoy contemporary, Country and Western, Classical, Disco or Easy Listening music, there’s something for everyone as the whole spectrum of genres is used these days.

Conventions are held at State and National levels, drawing crowds of hundreds (thousands in the USA and Europe) of dancers just for the joy of dance and the fun of sharing a mutual interest.

Everything you learn is portable, as the movements are the same wherever you go and the calling is always done in English. Dancers from Hervey Bay have travelled throughout Australia, some even ventured to the USA, Canada, Germany, Austria, China and New Zealand to join in with the various events being held.

This year the National Convention will be held in Queensland at Buderim at the University of Queensland Stadium, it is a 6 day smorgasbord of dancing with more than 70 callers from all over Australia, the USA and Britain. For a closer look visit; http://www.squaredancenational2016.com/

Anyone wishing to be part of such an extensive family can take their first steps at 9.30am on March 3rd at 459 Boat Harbour Drive with the Hervey Bay Square Dancers as our 2018 Classes are starting up. March 10th is your last opportunity to join up.

Try it, you might like it.
