Not for Squares!

This week, St. George Village members were entertained by a group of square dancing students from Queen of Angels Catholic School. The students curtseyed and bowed, allemanded, circled, do si doed, passed through, and swung their partners, showing how much fun square dancing can be!

Besides fun, did you know that square dancing offers other physical, mental and social benefits? Square dancing can help keep you fit by burning calories, lowering blood pressure, improving cholesterol, strengthening weight-bearing bones and slowing bone loss, and more. This form of dance also keeps you on your mental toes by requiring you to react to the “calls” for changing movements and steps. Plus, square dancing requires teamwork, with each team of eight dancers depending on each other to keep the dance moving.

With a square dance video playing in the background, the enthusiastic and energetic students dazzled their audience with promenades and do-si-dos!

A good time was had by all. Thanks for the fun, Queen of Angels students!
