OFB English Country Dance: Bob Thompson and John Lam, Leaders

November 26 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

All are welcome to join us for our next Sunday Afternoon English Country Dance. English country dancing dates  back to peasant dancing in the countryside of England. Later the Royals adopted the dance for their Formal Balls, which can be seen in film adaptations of Jane Austen Novels.  However! We are not “Royals.”    Just ordinary folk!

We dance every 2nd and 4th Sunday afternoons at Harvest House Community Center

3:30pm,   Beginners’ Session

4:00pm – 6:00pm,  Dance

Leaders: Bob Thompson and John Lam

Our leader/caller teaches each dance as a walkthrough and then dances the dance to live music. Dancers find new partners for each new dance. 

Live Music:  Cathy Arps, Violin; Linda Block, Recorder; Suzanne Hosch, Flute;                        Karen Gaughan, Piano.

Wear comfortable clothes and non-marking shoes. 

Admission is free and open to the public.   

We are eternally grateful to The Old Farmers Ball for their support of  English Country Dance and other smaller,  local traditional dances such as The Family Dance, Southern Square Dance, Waltzing, as stated in the OFB Mission Statement.
