We learn/perform/teach English Country and Scottish Country dances. 

English Country Dances are also the traditional dances of Colonial America. Several of these dances have been featured in Jane Austen movies.  We also do modern dance in the English Country style.  Have you learned to contra or square dance?  This is similar, with the steps and movements called during the dance.  The dancing is social - you dance with other people within a dance, and tend to dance with a different partners during the evening.

We meet at Royster Presbyterian Church, 6901 Newport Ave, Norfolk (two blocks behind Granby High) nearly every Tuesday at 7:30pm - we skip a few in the middle of summer and any that clash with the holidays in Nov, Dec, Jan.  The church is U-shaped - we enter in the middle of the U - with a DANCE sign on the door.

Our gender balance is usually close to 50/50, so please consider joining us if you enjoy dancing.  If you can walk, you can dance.

Please try to bring a pair of soft shoes that haven't been worn outside - we dance on a wooden floor and don't want to leave marks.

It there's a 5th Tuesday in a month, we have a Ceili/Ceilidh.  These are less formal dances, more like a barn dance.  We have light potluck refreshments, and it's a chance to wear an informal kilt.

We're 43 Dancers
