English Country Dance, Introduction (C/S496) New | Allegany College of Maryland

Does the word “dancing” evoke nightmarish memories of being dragged onto the dance floor at Cousin Millie’s wedding, where you spent the next 5 minutes having no idea what to do with your arms and legs? But you do love music, and moving to music, so English Country Dancing could be the perfect compromise. This type of dancing – which immigrated to America along with the first British colonists – is fun and easy to learn. Similar to square dancing, you’ll learn some simple figures, which are strung together in a variety of sequences to make up different dances. The best part – your instructor will be “calling” each dance (telling you what to do every step of the way).   George Washington did it… Jane Austen did it… If you can walk and count to 4, you can learn English Country Dancing, too! Still not sure? Try the first class for free – if you would like to continue (we know you will!), you can register for the full course afterwards.
