English Country Dance
Elementary, Middle School, High School, and Adult (Ages 10-18+)
English Country dancing is a lovely and easy style of social dancing that has been enjoyed by many for centuries at elaborate balls, quaint garden parties, and even battlefield barracks. Before the time of intimate dance holds and complicated foot-work, English Country Dance is made up of figures of steps that repeat in a pattern as the dances progress down a line, in a circle or square; and with the presence of a Caller, there is no fear of forgetting the next step. Pre-curser of Square Dancing and akin to Irish Ceili, ECD is for people of all ages and walks of life, with no prior dance experience required.
