February 2018

from the February 2018 English Country Dance


To all of you who attended the English Country Dance during the past year.  We’re taking a break for the Summer, but will be back in the Fall.  A Fall schedule will be posted in early August.

English Country Dance was the world’s longest-running dance craze.  They were immensely popular from 1630 to 1830, as seen in Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility (the Jane Austen novels, and the movies based on them).  All are invited – no partner or previous experience needed.  There is no lesson, and figures are taught as needed.  Easier dances at the beginning of the evening lead up to more elegant and graceful dances by the end of the evening.
