Square dancing flourishes in Cheney with new Hi-Flyers club
Cheney’s Hi-Flyers Square Dance Club is the fastest growing club in the Inland Northwest and there are some good reasons why. The club has a popular teacher in 22-year-old Adam Christman and they keep their goals simple when it comes to dancing – health, friendships and casual attitudes.
New co-presidents Grant and Lelia Smith said in a news release that modern square dancing keeps the mind active and the body fit without strenuous workouts, combining exercising of the mind and body.
They also emphasize that square dancing is a great social mixer – for singles as well as for couples – blending people into new friendships from all walks of life.
Dance participants are encouraged to relax, laugh, dance, make some mistakes but most of all have fun.
The Hi-Flyers Square Dance Club is starting lessons for beginners Sunday, Sept. 8, from 2-3 p.m. at Cheney’s City Hall auditorium. Lessons are $3.50 per person, but the first lesson is free to give people a little taste of the fun to be had square dancing.
A second set of lessons begins Oct. 27. Special attire is not required, with casual clothes such as jeans, T-shirts and comfortable shoes encouraged.
