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.
