Welcome to Country Dancers of Westchester!

Country Dancers of Westchester
is devoted to promoting the beauty & fellowship of English country dancing through regular events in a friendly, safe, & supportive environment. The dances range from elegant to boisterous, with a special emphasis on the choreography of the group's co-founder, Fried de Metz Herman.

COVID-19 Update:
Our dances have been canceled through the end of 2020.
The tradition that we love will not vanish just because we must hit the pause button for a while.
Dancing together will resume when it is safe to gather.
 Meanwhile, stay well. Wash your hands.
Be kind to each other.

All dances are taught & accompanied by live music.
Come with or without a partner (your first visit is on us).
We are a welcoming, tax-exempt, volunteer organization.
English country dance basics are easily learned & we welcome beginners at all Thursday dances. One of our teachers is always available at 7:15 to orient new dancers. Wear comfortable, informal clothing & low-heeled, soft-soled shoes. We dance most Thursdays from September to May. (Some experience is highly desirable for our monthly dance parties & special events where teaching is limited.)
