English Country Dance video


London Folk was the EFDSS national dance display team.  Here, former members most probably in their 60s and 70s now, dance for the 2011 EFDSS National gathering at Cecil Sharp House.

Nothing could contrast more with the USA dreamy, floaty, feet not leaving the floor view of English Country Dance.  You will see: precision, energy, skipping, swinging, ranting, pas-de-bas, dancing/swinging around and stepping.

Here's a picture of me dancing with London Folk at the Royal Albert Hall back in the 1970s
