Saegertown is home to many activities, one of the lesser known ones being square dancing.
Students who are members of the group Wild Country Dancers are preparing for the competition at the Pennsylvania Farm Show in January. As of now, there are four squares, each comprised of eight people, for this group from all over northwestern Pa.
The square dancers perform to five songs. The first two, which are warm-up songs, are “Bend Me, Shake Me” and “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing.” The last three, which are the competition songs, are “Ease Down the Road,” “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” and “Write This Down.”
“I like to compete. It’s a lot of fun going down and seeing all of the different exhibits and the tractors. And I love the chocolate milkshakes,” said freshman Nathan Barner.
