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 usually dance to recorded music, although very occasionally , we might have the opportunity to dance to live music.
No special clothes are required -
