Anyone who enjoys music and moving to music can do this fun and social activity. It is easy to learn choreographies quickly, and the music is up-beat. Comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended. Come prepared for a few laughs!

Published in 1651 "The Dancing Master" was the first collection of English Country Dances. Editions of this book remained popular for nearly a hundred years, and the dances were mentioned fondly in Napoleonic and Victorian literature. In Britain at the turn of the twentieth century, English Country Dancing saw a revival as a dance form.

Nicola began ballet, jazz, and improvised movement to music from a young age. She was introduced to English Country Dancing at university where she joined the Medieval and Renaissance Society, and subsequently taught dancing there for thirteen years.
