Learn the basics of English Country dancing at our Culture Days Open House! English Country Dance is a form of social folk dance, originating in Renaissance England. It is the precursor of several other folk dances, including contra and square dance.

The dancing is friendly and the atmosphere is informal. If you’ve seen a Jane Austen film, you’ve seen English Country Dancing. Wonderful new dances and tunes are being written all the time; this includes the work of some of our talented instructors!

Doors open at 7:00pm, dancing starts at 7:30pm

Live music provided by the Fine Companions

Please note that this dance form requires moderate fitness. Mental and physical agility are essential components.

No partner needed. Please wear comfortable, clean shoes and wear clothes you're comfortable moving in.



Village Green English Country Dancers

We are a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for people of all ages to learn contemporary, traditional and historic English dances in a creative, fun-filled environment.

We hold weekly classes throughout the fall and the winter. Beginners are always welcome to join our regular classes as our experienced instructors will ease them into learning the patterns and steps that make for joyful dancing experiences. Partners are encouraged but not necessary as we dance in non-gendered sets.

We are part of a world-wide community of folk dance organizations through the Country Dance and Song Society.
