Chinese square dancing has generated some controversy recently. In my opinion, the square dancing has exceptional advantages of enriching senior citizens’ lives.
First of all, it is no doubt that square dancing plays an important role in physical exercise. Dancing can help to cure some chronic diseases so it can lower the costs of health care for the elderly. Secondly, this kind of group activity has a social function for the lonely and helpless people. It is a golden opportunity for them to make friends and communicate with each other. Finally, it's a pastime that costs little or no money for citizens. It's cheap but fun.
