In the English Country Dancing Group we perform authentic dances from the late 17th. and the early 18th. centuries, in addition to modern versions in the earlier style. The emphasis is on enjoyment for which English Country Dancing may well be unique among ‘serious’ dance styles in that it is equally enjoyable whether the dancers are performing correctly or otherwise.

The group has been operating for 8 years & is no longer a beginners' group. If you would like to learn more about this group, please send our organiser a message via the 'flying bird' icon at the top right hand side of this page (or at the foot of the page if viewing on a mobile device).

You won’t need a partner as the steps are almost identical whether dancing as a man or a lady. Furthermore, all the dances are ‘called’, so that a robust memory is not essential. The group does not perform to the public which relieves us from perfection targets.

We consider that any potential recruit should be warned that English Country Dancing is addictive and can easily become the highlight of the week.
