English Country Dance with Maivish and Michael Barraclough (10:00 - 12:00, Fireplace Room)
Jane Austen did it. George Washington did it. So can you! ECD is the predecessor of Irish, Scottish, square and contra dances. Of all these, English has the greatest variety of shapes, figures, moods and music with the pace varying from slow and elegant to lively and vigorous. Come and spend an hour or two dancing wonderful dances to outstanding music and get rid of any pre-conceived idea that ECD is slow, or boring or ploddy.
