What we're about

Santa Cruz Lively English Country Dancing.

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 various patterns as they interact with other couples. It's easy to learn.

Beginners are very welcome -- all dances taught and prompted.. Gender-neutral roles/calling (larks/ravens).

This group has been going for many years, and we always welcome new folks (most aren't on Meetup -- we usually have 6-12 dancers and 2-6 musicians). We generally meet the second Thursdays of the month and have live music.

If you're a musician, you're welcome to join our open band.

We're a casual, fun-loving group. Come dance with us!

Videos of many of the dances that we do are at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoXJ ... — no Ren Garb required! :)
