What is square dancing all about? Square dancing is a group activity that's all about fun. It's a social activity done in a friendly atmosphere with mutual respect and cooperation of all participants. Square dancing is exercise. Square dance movements raise the heart rate like a good aerobic exercises should. Its a low impact activity requiring constant movement and quick directional changes that help keep the body in shape. It provides some excellent mental challenges. The music and dancing are accompanied by a “caller”. This person always announces to the dancers the dance moves, telling them which direction to go and what moves to make so that all the dancers are moving in unity and doing the same steps at the same time. The caller strings together a sequence of individual square dance calls to make a figure or sequence. These calls are the building blocks of the choreography that is danced by the individuals, square dancers, in the squares.
