BEFORE YOU SAY NO…

OUR TOP 10 LIST OF SQUARE DANCING OBJECTIONS:

#10. I can’t dance.
You don’t have to be Fred Astaire to square dance! Yes, you do need to be able to tell you right foot from your left foot, but we can work on that.

#9. I don’t have a partner.
You don’t need one. Square dancing welcomes singles and couples.  Who knows, you might meet a dance partner along the way.

#8. I don’t have time.
Count up how much time you spend watching TV each week, and then see how easy it is to find two hours a week.

#7. I don’t have the right clothes.
Really?  While some people like to have fun with the traditional square dance “look,” there is no special uniform required.  Wear something comfortable.

#6. I don’t like country music.
Square dance callers use all kinds of music – some of their choices may surprise you.

#5. I can’t afford it.
Square dancing is the cheapest good time you can find.

#4. It’s not enough exercise.
Dance three hours at a special dance or ten hours at a Convention and get back to us on that.

#3. It’s too much exercise.
Square dancing can accommodate people with very different levels of stamina. You can dance non-stop, or take as many breaks as you want.

#2. I square danced in fourth grade and I didn’t like it.
Try again!

#1. I already get too much exercise, meet too many terrific people, travel more than enough, and, in general, have too much fun for one lifetime.
Wow! Is your name Madonna?
