Oakmont Square Dancing Club
Sunday evenings from 6:00-8:00 PM
West Recreation Center-Downstairs
You may remember square dancing from your school days or from old-time movies. If so, you will hardly recognize square dancing today! Square dancing has a long heritage, coming to America with the earliest settlers but has changed over the years and continues to evolve. It is for the active in heart and mind—a great physical exercise and a mental challenge.
With all its moving and turning, square dancing provides more than the daily dose of heart- and bone-healthy physical exercise. Dancing regularly improves balance and coordination. Remembering all the calls — from ‘Do-si-do’ to ‘Pass the Ocean’ — keeps the mind sharp. It reduces stress and is so engaging that you leave your worries at the door!
Our group has been steadily learning the basic calls with our caller-in-training Phil Herzog. We are also scheduling professional caller Lawrence Johnstone as often as he is available. Lawrence is on the calendar for July 7, 21 and 28 at $5 per event. Other Sundays are free. At this point we would like to invite only experienced dancers who care to join us.
The companionship that regular square dancing offers is an antidote to depression and loneliness. Square dancing is friendship set to music!
