You say you’ve never heard of English Country Dancing? You’re in good company. If you’ve seen Pride and Prejudice, Emma, or Sense and Sensibility at the movies, you have indeed seen it! Fear not, English Country Dancing (ECD) is not some obscure relic! While this traditional form of group dance has been around for several hundred years, it’s still thriving today. Most of the movements are simply based on a walking or skipping step. Dancers move in a number of specific “figures” sometimes holding hands, sometimes by themselves. Each dance will be taught and prompted by a “caller” and every movement is called in time with the music. Beginners are welcome and encouraged – and partners are not necessary. And then there’s the music – beautiful tunes that will make the heart swell – sometimes sweet, sometimes stately, and sometimes absolutely driven with a pulsating beat. All of this combines to make ECD energizing, mesmerizing, social, and just plain fun! Come join us! ($100 for 11-week session or $12/ drop-in )
