English Country Dance
What is English country dancing?
English Country Dances range from elegant to rowdy
and from easy to difficult, with a wide range of mood, meter, and music.
The first publication of English Country Dances was by John Playford
in 1651, and people are still writing new dances today. The modern style
of English Country Dance focuses more on geography than on footwork,
and you can enjoy it if you know right from left and can follow directions.
