Square Wheelers offer more of a good thing this fall

Introductory square dance lessons are available at three locations in Surrey this fall.

The Surrey Square Wheelers have teamed up with Surrey Leisure Services to offer introductory lessons at three locations this fall.

People in search of an activity that combines fitness, fancy footwork and socializing are in luck this fall.

Introductory square dance lessons are now available at three locations in Surrey, with the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre joining the Cloverdale Rec Centre and Port Kells Hall in offering this fun-filled activity to the city.

It’s more of a good thing. Proponents say square dancing reduces stress, improves health, stimulates the mind and introduces you to new friends while providing a great time.

It’s a low-impact route to fitness and it’s a weight-bearing exercise that’s known to increase blood flow and lung capacity. It also improves balance and coordination, mental ability and reduces stress and age-related memory loss.

You’ll also meet new friends while square dancing, and have fun.

Contact the Surrey Square Wheelers or Surrey Leisure Services to find out more.
