Two left feet ~ Yup so do we! 
Don't know your right from your left! ~ We are directionally challenged also. Some more so than others 
I don't know how to dance! ~ Yea that's ok, we don't know how to either.
We do know how to have fun and make friends. We will guarantee that your face muscles will hurt the next day from smiling so much and that your stomach muscles will ache from all the laughing. 

You say you're tempted, but not sure if you've got what it takes? Don't underestimate yourself!

"Square dancing is not as complex as it looks, he says. "We just learn one move at a time and go from there."

Hope to see you in our square. " ~ Mary Dykes

Student Comment

 Denise was a student during the 2009-2010 dancing season; and here are her comments on learning to square dance:

"Denise started "real" square dancing in the fall of 2009 with her fun loving friend, Kate. The Buckeye Squares welcomed us with open arms and do si do's. Before long, our favorite dancin' partners, Bill and Will were coming too. It's better than sudoku for your mind and much more fun than running! She is determined to learn every plus call this year as an angel. "

        Let me bore you with the health                     benefits from WebMD!! 
                 

            Good for Body and Mind

With all its moving, twisting, and turning, square dancing provides more than the daily dose of heart- and bone-healthy physical activity. Remembering all the calls -- from "do-si-do" to 'alemand' -- keeps the mind sharp, potentially staving off age-related memory loss, experts say. And the companionship that regular square dancing offers is an antidote to depression and loneliness, a statement confirmed by square-dancing advocates everywhere.

'If You Can Walk, You Can Square Dance'

McKinley knows what he's talking about. Square dancing contributes to a more healthy and independent lifestyle, says Lewis Maharam, MD, a sports medicine specialist in New York City and president of the Greater New York Regional Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine."Anything that keeps you active will keep you healthier and feeling younger. In most cases if you can walk, you can square dance, but it's good advice to talk to your doctor before beginning any new exercise regimen," says Maharam, also medical director of the Suzuki Rock 'n' Roll Marathon® in San Diego, the Country Music Marathon™, and the New York City Marathon."Any weight-bearing exercise, including square dancing, is a major benefit as one ages," he says. Weight-bearing exercise improves bone health and thus may help stave off the brittle-bone disease osteoporosis."Square dancing also helps you with the feeling of where you are in space and with coordination, and this may reduce falls and chances for fractures," says Maharam. "Regular square dancing may boost endurance, and being able to tolerate longer bouts of moving faster may result in improved cardiac function as the heart, a muscle, can become more efficient if trained. Square dancing can be considered a type of cross training, which helps to offset the muscle loss and strength loss typically associated with normal aging."
