English Country Dance

Back to Previous

Come to the English Country Dance and enjoy moving in smooth figures to live music. Everyone who wants to dance is guaranteed a partner. Each dance is taught and all ages are encouraged to participate. The dance form dates back to the 16th century. It appears in some movies portraying Queen Elizabeth I, as well as in film adaptations of Dickens and Jane Austen novels. Each dance has its own music. The tunes are hauntingly
beautiful, ranging from old ballads, jigs, and reels to several immortalized in classical music and opera.

Fee: Sliding scale $3-6; pay what you can at the door. No registration. Membership not required.
