English Country Dance Intensive
January 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday, repeating until March 13, 2019
With roots in the Elizabethan era, this historic social dance form is a true living tradition. Ranging from graceful and flowing to vigorously energetic, English Country Dance is easy to learn and gentle on the body. Join Traditional-Live! for a ten week English Country Dance intensive that culminates in a Grand Ball finale on Saturday, March 23, where you can strut your stuff as the Lords and Ladies of northeast Oregon! Get exercise, meet new people, and party like it’s 1599. No dance partner required. Fees include all class sessions and the Ball – all participants must pre-register through ACE. Please enter through the Penn Avenue door.
Teaching Artist: Mark Lewis
Cost: $25 ACE or Traditional Live! Member / $35 Non-member
Teaching Artist Bio: Mark has over 40 years of experience with numerous styles of folk dancing, including leading public folk-dancing in La Grande since 1999. English Country Dance is his current passion, and he loves introducing others to the opportunities for enjoyment and interpersonal connection in this apparently archaic art form.
