IS ENGLISH COUNTRY DANCING?
English country dancing typically involves lines of men facing lines of women; the dancers walk patterns with their partners and with other couples in the set. Our dance leader is Peter Wollenberg; all dances are taught from scratch each evening. You can come with or without a partner.
Beginners are welcome at all events! Each dance evening starts
at 7:00 with a beginners' workshop so that newcomers can learn the
fundamentals of English country dancing.
The St. Louis English Country Dancers (Local 1651) are members of the
Dance and Song Society, CDSS.
