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.
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.
This is not a beginners group.
