SPIRE FOLK DANCE CLUB DANCECLUB CLUB
Spire Folk Dance Club is a group of friendly people who meet twice a month in order to dance (mainly) English folk dances.
We dance a mixture of 17th and 18th Century dances (think of those in Pride and Prejudice,
but without the cumbersome clothes of that period!!) -
All dances are described and walked through before dancing by the ‘caller’, with individual figures and moves explained. We may well perform a dance more than once (and not just because it goes wrong!!). We often repeat dances from one week to the next in order to help people to feel comfortable with a few dances, as opposed to trying to get through as many different dances as possible all the time.
We sometimes choose a number of dances to work on regularly during the course of the season, so as to try and enjoy the dances more and improve our dancing technique. Use the Core Dances button to see the current season’s list.
We usually dance to recorded music, although very occasionally , we might have the opportunity to dance to live music.
No special clothes are required -
