The 2nd Sunday English Dance for Experienced Dancers is an opportunity to dance to the music of Fine Companions (and friends), suggested donation $10, dance shoes required, no street shoes permitted beyond the entrance.
The dances will be a balance of familiar dances and unfamiliar dances.

We ask that dancers be comfortable dancing standard English Dance figures including:
- Heys in various orientations
- Regular and Double figure eights
- Triple minor progressions
- Dancing with couples outside of your group of 4
- Straight and draw poussettes.

PCDC has authorized committees to make decisions about masking policies for their own events. All contra dances are mask-optional at this time. English dances are alternating between those that require masks and those that do not. Check the upcoming dances information to verify status of a dance.
PCDC no longer requires proof of vaccination, but we continue to encourage everyone to be vaccinated. While currently available COVID-19 vaccines no longer do much to prevent transmission, they continue to be effective for protecting oneself from more serious illness.
