Dance instructor Larry Ward is offering dance classes Mondays and Tuesdays at the Genoa Town Hall.
Ward, 77, has been square dancing for 60 years.
"As a little kid I watched it and thought it was great," he said. "I got started calling when I was 13."
The 16-week country couple and line dancing classes cost $7 per person.
Students will learn waltz across Texas, cowboy cha, Texas two-step and line dances.
Classes are 7 to 8:30 p.m. every week beginning Monday at the Genoa Town Hall.
The 20-week beginner square dance classes cost $6 for adults and $4 for teens.
According to Ward, an evening of square dancing offers great aerobic and mental exercise, develops social skills by interacting with eight people in a square, and relieves tension and stress.
"Young people are so into computers, so it's the older generations holding it together," Ward said. "Socially, we'd like to see college-age people come out and join something that's social and all-American. We're just trying to keep it alive."
Classes are 6 to 7:30 p.m. every week beginning Tuesday in the Genoa Town Hall.
