Mark your calendar: the National Square Dance Convention has announced that it will be circling right into Cincinnati in 2017.

We all did it in elementary school gym class, but if your square dancing is a bit rusty you have some time to brush up on your terminology and invest in some cowboy boots. 

The convention was last held in Cincinnati in 1992. According to News Channel 5 and the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, the convention is expected to attract around 4,000 participants. 

The bureau estimates that square dancers will account for 5,500 hotel rooms during the four-day convention, with an economic impact of some $1.6 million. 

We'll do-si-do to that.
