English country dancing in central York Region! (Ontario, Canada)
You don't need to bring a partner, and most people don't; we switch partners every dance anyway.
We dance on the first, third, and (when there is one) fifth Saturday of the month from 2:00 to 4:00 at Trinity United Church, 461 Park Avenue (near Davis and Main), Newmarket. Enter from Park Avenue.
Upcoming dates: May 20, June 3, June 17, July 1, July 15, July 29.
No dances in August. We resume on September 2.
Parking: You can park in the parking lot to the west of the church (by the daycare, which grounds are also owned by the church). If that is full, you can sometimes find a spot on Main Street (but pay attention to the time limit signs, because they're all different durations). Or, there is a "green P" parking lot just off Main Street (on the east side) which is free and generally has space.
English Country Dance is graceful and stately, and quite a lot of fun. You may have seen English Country Dance in Jane Austen movies.
No dance experience required. All dances are taught!
Admission is by donation, and your first class is free.
