Description

Jonathan Sivier leads these fun, social, and low-impact dances which provide good exercise for the mind as well as the body. Examples can be seen in the various movie adaptations of Jane Austen's books. In addition, we may include dances from the American Colonial, Revolutionary and Civil War eras, as well as modern compositions. English country dancing was popular in England, Europe and the colonies from the 1600s to the early 1800s. It is one of the primary dance forms from which American contra and square dance are descended. Wear comfortable clothes and bring a pair of clean, soft-soled, non-marking, non-street shoes.


Please remember to bring a pair of clean, soft-soled, non-marking, non-street shoes to wear for class.
