Dances range from lively dances that would have been danced at English village celebrations years ago, the kind you might have seen at a Barn Dance, to the elegant dances enjoyed by upper classes such as those seen in Pride and Prejudice and other costume dramas.
It is not necessary to bring a partner to any dance but do bring soft soled shoes. No dance experience is required although beginners should, if possible, start at one of our regular Dance Classes. Dress is usually casual although we do host the occasional dress-up events such as the Saturday Ball in our annual 'A Trip to Ottawa' dance weekend.
In consideration of dancers with allergies or sensitivities we request that you do not use perfumes and other strongly-scented products. For occasional pot-luck events avoid the use of nuts.
As the weather is uncertain please check back at 6:00 by when we will indicate whether tonight's dance is still on.
