Come to the English Country Dance and
enjoy moving in smooth figures to gorgeous
live music. Everyone who wants to dance is
guaranteed a partner. Each dance is taught,
and all ages are encouraged to participate. The
dance form dates back to the 16th century.
It appears in some movies portraying Queen
Elizabeth I, as well as in film adaptations of
Dickens and Jane Austen novels. Each dance
has its own music. The tunes are hauntingly
beautiful, ranging from old ballads, jigs, and
reels to several immortalized in classical music
and opera.
