Welcome to Tsukuba Sequre Dance Club Website (English version).
Square dancing is a kind of social dance that you do in groups of eight formed into a square. It is a fun activity that pairs a physical component with a mental task, so it is very good for keeping your body and mind active. It was originally an American folk dance, but in the last 30 years it has been considerably altered to its modern form, which is now quite popular all over Japan, as well as in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and many other countries. It takes a few months to learn the basic steps of square dancing, but once you know them, you can join square dancing events anywhere in the world.
Tsukuba has a square dancing club that has been in existence for over 39 years! Classes start in May in 2020 with one free trial lesson. The classes are held on Saturday nights from 7pm to 9pm.
