English Country Dancing is the dance form of Shakespeare, Jane Austen and Napoleon, but new tunes and dances are being written all the time. It is done in groups (no lead or follow), with dancers weaving intricate patterns around each other to music ranging from lively jigs and reels to dreamy, stately or dramatic melodies.
Live music, all dances taught, walked through and cued during the music by professional callers. We’re a friendly and welcoming group, and we all invite newcomers to dance with us, so no partner is needed.
Every Friday through the end of May (except for Good Friday)!
After that we move outdoors for our summer series in High Park on Sunday afternoons.
Bring low-heeled shoes with some grip (old, well-worn running shoes work well) and your own reusable water bottle, wear comfortable, layered clothes, and kindly refrain from wearing scented body- and hair-care products.
