American Square Dance Beginners Class

Author:Author unknown, Issue: March 2002, Topic: Sports

Tsukuba Square Dance Club will conduct an American Square Dance beginners' class. Square dancing is a lot of fun, involving both rhythmic movement and a bit of puzzle-like brain work. It was originally an American folk dance, but in the last 30 years has been considerably altered to its modern form, which is now quite popular all over Japan, as well as in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia.

Our club, the Tsukuba Square Dance Club (TSDC), meets each Saturday evening, 7-9 p.m., to learn, teach, and enjoy square dancing, at the Takezono Public Hall (Takezono Kominkan), just behind (to the east of) the Takezono Shopping Center. We have about 70 members, men and women of all ages and various backgrounds, mostly Japanese. If some of you think you might be interested, or are just curious, drop by one of the Saturday evening meetings and take a look, please. No appointment is necessary.

Dates: March 9 to July 6, 2002
Time: 19:00 - 21:00
Place: Takezono Public Hall
Bring: Indoor shoes
Cost: 2000 yen (single), 3000 yen (couple) for 4 months
