Ranging from graceful and flowing to vigorously energetic, English Country dancing is easy to learn and easy on the body. Nearly forgotten after several centuries of being at the center of European social life, the fluid movements of this dance style have fascinated current-day dancers and inspired a wealth of modern compositions. No experience necessary, drop-ins welcome. Comfortable clothes and low heeled shoes recommended.
Dates: April 3, May 1, June 5, July 3, August 7
Teaching Artists: Mark and Dianne Lewis
Cost: $5 Donation
Teaching Artist Bio: Mark and Dianne Lewis love English Country dancing, which has become a shared passion. They are tireless in seeking to pass on their enthusiasm for this and other related group social dance traditions, using a light-hearted teaching style that makes learning easy and fun.
