Thornbury

Country Dancing

We have approximately 20 regular members but we always have room for more. The two leaders teach us a variety of English country dances from 1650 through to dances written in the 20th century. There are different styles and speeds so you can dance at you own pace.

WHERE - Methodist church upstairs hall in Thornbury

WHEN - alternate Tuesday afternoons from 2 pm to 3.45 pm.

Each dance is walked through and called so you do not need any prior knowledge. At the moment we use music on CDs but we would like to use live music. If you play an instrument then bring it along to try playing some dances.

COST - We ask members to pay £2 per week or £10 per term so we are sure of covering the current hall rental cost. New members are welcome to come for a taster session for £2.

We are always pleased to see new faces and it doesn’t matter if you have never danced before, are on your own or are a bit shy, You don’t need to bring a partner as the more experienced dancers help any newcomers and the dances often mix people up.. You don’t have to dance all the time as some of us sit and watch to have a rest. It’s fun, good exercise and a way of making new friends. Some ladies dance as “men” so we don’t need exact numbers of men and women.
Why not give it a go and come to join us?
