Square Dancing is an exercise that is fun but doesn’t feel like hard work. This physical effort results in dancers outliving the average person by as much as ten years! Of course, there are many alternate healthful activities, notably brisk walks, working out at the gym, bicycling, swimming, etc. But after a few months, most find those routines become boring and difficult to stick to. Contrast that with a couple of hours of square dancing, which fly by with calories burned comparable to a 3-mile run. And it’s so much fun, you can’t wait to come back for more!
