English Country Dance will satisfy your wish for
an artistic outlet, pleasurable exercise, mental stimulation
and a warm social community.
Dance with us from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the Bellingham Senior Activity Center. The dance is free and open to the public. People of any age may join us for dancing. English Country Dance basics are easily learned and new people are welcome any time. There’s minimal footwork: If you can walk you can dance! Wear loose, comfortable clothes, and flat shoes that won’t skid or stick on a wood floor. You don’t need to bring a partner. Our repertoire includes dances popular in 1650 all the way up to dances written this year.* Stately, playful, dreamy, joyous… all these and more. All dances are taught and called.
From Nov. 9 From Nov. 2From Oct. 19 Some videos of previous sessions can be found here.
