The VECDS annual Hands Across the Water dance and workshop weekend is returning after a two-year hiatus. To be held in Victoria BC — September 9-11, 2022. Brad Foster will be leading the dances and The Dancehall Players & Friends will be providing the music. Registration is now open. Please contact VECDS.helpers@gmail.com for program and registration information

The VECDS is a group of friendly people who gather once a week to dance. We dance in longways sets, other long sets, circles and squares

These are "old" dances from the 18th and 19th centuries and "new" dances in the English style created in the 20th and 21st centuriesDancehall Players porch group photo

Each dance has its own music played wonderfully by our musicians, The Dancehall Players and friends

It is easy to learn the dances and we always have a caller

We welcome newcomers, whether dancers or musicians. No partner or experience is required -- simply a desire to have fun, dance or play music

The Dancehall Players
, our lovely house band, will be performing about the region throughout the year

Be on the announcement e-mail list to hear of any cancellations or other dance or dance music news. Be on the English Ball list for first word on registration information for our next ball. Date TBD

VECDS is an affiliate of the Country Dance & Song Society
