Square and Round Dancing in Newtown

The Rocking Roosters Square Dance Club was founded over 50 years agoby a group of Congregational Church members with the aid of localcaller Bob Paris. We are a group of friendly people whoenjoy and promote western style square and round dancing.Modern square dancing is a mental and physical challenge. It isdancing, it is thinking, it is teamwork. You can't do it byone's or two's. Moving in rhythm to the music keeps youphysically fit. Reacting quickly to the square dance caller'scalls keeps you mentally on your toes. And your team of eightdancers depends on you to keep those toes moving.
