There is an active square dance club in Tsukuba, and they are beginning a new series of lessons for beginners, every Saturday night 7-9 pm, starting March 6.
Square dancing is originally an American folk dance form, but it has been modernized and standardized considerably in the past 20-30 years, and is now a world-wide leisure activity. It's great fun, and anyone who can walk can do it (no particular talent required). If you're interested, come and take a look!
The club meets at the Takezono Minkan (I think that's the name - it's a community center, near the Takezono shopping center).
