 WARNING    Very Contagious 

       SQUARE DANCE FEVER

Cause: Usually caused by exposure to Hoedown recordings.

Symptoms: Absent minded tapping of the floor with foot. 

Mumbling meaningless phrases such as “Allemand left with the old left hand” and “Do-si-do with the gent you know”. 

Constant need for a babysitter. 

Dressing weird costumes and imitation cowboy style.

                                           No Known Cure

Treatment: Medication is useless. Disease is not fatal. In fact it has been shown to prolong life. Play Hoedown recordings for soothing effect. Victim should go square dancing as often as possible.

Dancing is a fun activity that everyone can enjoy. You will meet new friends, learn new dancing steps, enjoy great music, and benefit from a healthy activity. People from every walk of life are involved in square dancing, round dancing, line dancing and/or clogging. 

You may only want to do one, two, or all four forms of dancing. Not only are there twenty six (26) clubs and associations with which to dance in the Inland Empire, but there are clubs throughout the United States and many countries overseas. All the square dancing is in English worldwide.

Come and enjoy making new friends. You will meet others with whom you share other interests besides dancing. You may even find new interests that you may want to develop. Dr. Daniel G. Amen states that making positive social connections is an important way to maintaining a healthy brain.

Learn how to dance. You may already know some or many of the steps taught in the various forms of dance.  There are a variety of levels in all the types of dancing. Thus, you may choose to learn new and more difficult steps, or you may choose to dance at the basic level. You choose - it's up to you.

Enjoy great music. A wide variety of music is used. The music played is from the past or present, some or many which you may recognize. In addition new music may be added. The forms of music cover a wide range from standards, to country, to musicals, to pop, or to movies.

Dancing is a healthy activity. There is a lot of research that tells us that dancing is healthy for us in many ways. First, dancing makes you smarter. Second, dancing will add ten years to your life. Third, dancing exercises the body and the mind at the same time. Finally, dancing helps prevent Alzheimer's.
