NOT CONVINCED THAT DANCING IS INCREDIBLY GOOD FOR YOU?

You'll be amazed at how powerful square dancing is in preventing the declines of old age.
And it seems like every day more research is published showing the benefits of sustained exercise, not only to ward off old age, but also to strengthen the immune system so that you're less likely to get cancer...or if you're unfortunate enough to develop a cancer, you'll get better more quickly if you exercise.  (Several articles on this in the New York Times this last few days).

**************************************      LESSONS 
As soon as we have enough folk interested, we'll start giving lessons before the dance at Buffalos.
If you're interested in lessons, please contact Dortha: pineywoodsart@gmail.com 

If you are an OLLI member, we have started an OLLI special interest group for square dancing:  OLLI SQUARES!  We're getting new dancers started with some basic moves, and then we'll arrange for formal lessons with our caller.  You do need to be an OLLI member to join the special interest group.  OLLI is wonderful organization for people over 50 who are interested in life long learning:  olli.uga.edu
