English Country dancing is a lively social activity to music from the 16th century to the 21st. Local musicians play for the dances. The music ranges from Renaissance to newly composed marches, hornpipes, jigs, waltzes and variants of these. The dance movement is a light walking step. Beginners are welcome. The caller precedes each individual dance by teaching and walking through the dance pattern.
