Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Donít knock-it, till youíve tried it
Love to dance? Love to meet new people? Love a great social outing? Love having fun? Trying to fit exercise into your busy schedule? Then modern Square dancing is possibly the answer to all your aspirations - but I must warn you, it's addictive, so once you start, you'll be hooked!
Square Dancing is a dance for four couples (eight dancers) arranged in a square, with one couple on each side, facing the middle of the square. There may be many squares on the floor, but each square is separate meaning that every square works together as a team on the floor, but is separate from the others. There are no set sequences to memorise, just different actions to take when cued live by the caller making for different dances every time, all to contemporary music in a very welcoming, casual environment. A typical dance evening consists of several dance 'brackets' which last about ten minutes each with breaks in between - at this point you can have a rest or continue to square dance, the choice is yours.
Great social event for making new friends
Modern Square Dancing provides exercise for both the mind and body enabling you to improve your fitness level while enjoying a good laugh (every time the caller tries to confuse you) in a very relaxed atmosphere.
This is a great way to meet new friends, keep fit and is suitable for every age group between ten and a hundred years of age. Your own dance partner is a nice-to-have, but not a necessity as there are always people available to partner with, and the experienced Square Dancers are very happy to teach the 'newbies' the moves.
