After a four month break, the Williams Lake Square Dancers are eagerly looking forward to another dance season.
Toes started to tap last week as the dancers welcomed the provincial government's proclamation of Square and Round Dance Awareness Week, September 14-20, 2014. The proclamation was signed by the Lieutenant Governor and recognized the many physical and mental health benefits of participating in this type of dancing.
Nick Turner, the club caller is quick to say, "What the proclamation didn't mention was how much fun square dancing is. Like many things in life, you won't learn square dancing in a single evening but dancers laugh a lot while they are learning and they have a blast! Loneliness and stress disappear out the door. Friendships are made and a variety of good music is enjoyed."
