DAVE DAHL

Dave Dahl, from Hopwood, PA, is a well-known performer with the mission of keeping square dancing alive. For decades, he and his late brother Paul played just about everywhere from fire halls to VFWs to weddings. He used to call square dances in Arthurdale. Today he visits nursing homes to bring some music and memories to residents. “It’s been said if you square dance regularly, you will live 10 years longer,” Dave says. At 79, we can say it’s definitely working for him.
