The Hix  "N" Chix Square Dance Club
    was formed and received their charter in
    1968.  A member of the Northeast Council
    which includes all the clubs in the
    northeast corner of Colorado, Laramie
    and Cheyenne Wyoming to promote the
    fun of square dancing.

    There are friendships and interaction with
    dancers in Loveland, Ft. Collins, Greeley,
    Lyons, Berthoud, Livermore, Cheyenne
    and Laramie as well as the Scootbacks'
    from the Denver Council.  Many clubs
    help support each other by stealing and
    retrieving club banners.

    Square dance calls are the same around
    the world, so dancing is available almost
    everywhere. Mainstream is the first level
    of square dance, then Plus, Advanced
    and more.  There is always more to learn
    if you wish to do so.

    Hix "N" Chix has a club caller as well as
    callers from the area, region and national
    that gives you an opportunity to square
    dance to a variety of callers and cuers for
    round dancing.

    The following are excepts printed from the United Square
    Dancers Association News, reprinted from Dacnin' News of
    Central Florida and The Caller of Memphis, Tennessee.

    Dr. Arron Blackburn states "It's clear that square dancing is a
    perfect exercise.  It combines all positive aspects of intense
    physical exercise with none of the negative elements."

    Dr. Blackburn said 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 the both female and male
    square dancers could expect to live well into their 80's.

    Square dance movements raise heart rates like many good
    aerobic exercises should.  All the quick changes of direction
    loosen and tone up the muscles-but not so severally as to cause
    injury.  In square dancing, when you're not moving, you're
    clapping hands and tapping your feet, which all contributes to
    long term fitness.
THANK YOU all for making our 50th Anniversary Dance an enjoyable
one. We had over 100 dancers in attendance.  The club history was
shared by some of the original charter members.  Here is a photo of
the charter members –They have been here for 50 years (1968-2018)!
