Unlike most historic dances, the primary goal of English Country Dancing has always been to have fun. A simple walking or skipping step will get you through most of the dances. Much of the time you don’t even need to know your right foot from your left!
No matter how complicated a dance may be, you won’t have to remember it yourself. Every dance is led by a caller who will let you know what comes next.
Like many English Country Dance groups, we follow the period custom of changing partners frequently between dances. So even if you attend by yourself, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to dance throughout the evening. Many of the dances also make intricate patterns that are enjoyable to watch.
