Hip to be Square in Guelph

Get healthier. Laugh more. Meet new people. Since 1962, Guelph residents have had the opportunity to cash in on these benefits with Royal City Square Dance Club. In spite of a dramatic drop in the fitness level of the average Canadian, square dancers are staying fit.

Live Ten Years Longer!

Square dancing will add ten years to your life, a surprising new study shows. Dr. Aaron Blackburn states “It’s clear that square dancing is the perfect exercise. It combines all positive aspects of intense physical exercise with none of the negative elements.”

Dr Blackburn said that square dancing is a low-impact activity requiring constant movement and quick directional changes that help keep the body in shape. The study was based on their physical examination which indicated that both male and female square dancers could expect to live well into their eighties.

Square dance movements raise heart rates as aerobic exercises should. The quick changes of direction loosen and tone up muscles-but not so severely as to cause injury.

“You don’t see a lot of 55 year old basketball players, but that’s just the age when square dancers are hitting their peak”, he said.
