This is a similar tradition from our British friends, and is one of the primary influences in the evolution of the American Contra dance. You will experience a wide range of tempos, formations and music styles. Some dances are elegant and sweeping (think Jane Austen), others are energetic and lively (they are country dances). We hold one full English dance each month and a more casual workshop, also once a month. The monthly dance features wonderful live music. 3 or 4 times a year the dance is designated as a Ball where period costumes are optional (but a lot of fun)
