English Country Dance At The Heritage House Nov. 28

Monday, October 23, 2017

There will be an English Country Dance for all at the Heritage House mansion in East Brainerd on Tuesday, Nov. 28 from 7-9 p.m.

"English Country Dance is a beautiful, historical social dance that was popular from around 1650 through the early 1800s. Movies based on Jane Austen novels such as Pride & Prejudice or Emma feature scenes with English country dancing at balls and parties. This class will be an introduction to English Country Dance designed for new dancers of all ages.  Experienced dancers are welcome, as well.

"We'll learn the basic moves -- the set and turn single, two hand turn, star right and left, back to back, and changes of rights and lefts. And then we'll learn various dances from the historical repertoire of English country dances -- Childgrove, The Duke of Kent's Waltz, Heartsease, Indian Queen, Sellenger's Round and more," officials said.

No partner or previous experience is necessary.  Dances will be taught and walked through with attention to learning the steps and style points. The music is pre-recorded.

"Nearly everyone is a beginner so no one will feel out of place," officials said.

Dancers are asked to bring a separate pair of soft-soled shoes for dancing (sneakers or flats).
