Saturday, October 6th, 2018
1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

This will be our LAST dance until the New Year (2019)

We play music that is traditional Barn Dance music, much of it in a Celtic style. Both the music and dances are part of our dancing heritage and is very beautiful. We dance a variety of dances - including Contra Dance, Regency dance (Jane Austen), Vienniese waltzes, polka, schotiisches ect etc. It is also excellent exercise. All dances taught on the spot. No experience needed. No partner needed. Dress is casual. Ladies dress casually in jeans or pant suit or wear a flowing skirt or dress . Please be fragrance free. Young children with parent/guardian free. Musicians welcome (we have music, or you can play by ear.) A list of our main melodies are on-line at and if you know a tune or two from the list we will include it in the dance programme.

We are a traditional Barn Dance, both for music and the dance choices. We do circle dances, quadrilles (squares), contra dances, partner dances such as old time waltze, schottische, two-steps, poka etc..The dancers are constantly changing partners and mixing as is traditional in old time Barn Dances and Ceilidhs,
