English country dance is a lively, social form of folk dance that was popular in the Renaissance era. You might have seen it performed at the Renaissance Faire. Couples dance in sets of various shapes and weave through elaborate patterns as they interact with other couples. It's easy to learn. Beginners are very welcome. This group has been going for many years, and we always welcome new folks. We generally meet the second and fourth Thursdays of the month, and we have live music on the second Thursday of the month. (If you're a musician, you're welcome to join our open band.) We're a casual, fun-loving group. Come dance with us!

If you'd like to see some videos of English country dance, and learn more about our group, visit our website: www.englishcountrydancing.net.
