English Country Dance for Experienced Dancers

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.

The callers will encourage dancers to incorporate style points such as quality of movement, timing, transitions and dancing with the music.

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.

Feb 11 (Sun): Start time changed to 3:30

Mask Policy:
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.

COVID Policy:
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.
