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