English Country Dance basics are easily learned. Experienced dancers warmly welcome b
eginners, whether you come with or without a partner, and o
ur expert leaders--accompanied by live music--teach all the dances, choosing from a repertoire that spans the late-17th century to the present.
Come early (7:15) for a quick orientation, and w
ear comfortable, informal clothing, with low-heeled, soft-soled shoes. S
ome experience is highly desirable for our
 frequent dance parties and special events where teaching is kept to a minimum.
