If there is one art form that has outgrown its stigma, it’s square dancing.

Popular with people of all ages, square dancing just might be one of the best-kept aerobic exercise secrets going.

A participant can dance up to six kilometres in one evening of do-si-do’ing, and have fun doing it.

For anyone wanting an introduction to the dance form, the Square Dance Clubs of Central Vancouver Island host an open house Wednesday (Sept. 28), at 7 p.m., at Nanoose Place, 2925 Northwest Bay Rd.

Participants have an opportunity to experience simple square dance moves – with help from club members – to a modern beat.

The event is free. Partners and singles are welcome to attend.

Please call Diane or Murray Thomas at 250-390-1899.
