Schedule of Callers, Dance Program, and Dances Danced - 2018 Autumn

Jump down to our next Thursday social dance program or to the next Sunday advanced ECD session
 * Denotes a "4th Thursday" of the month, Open Band evening

Weekly dancing Thursday evenings at the hall. Social dance 7:30 to about 9:30 p.m.

The evening sports a brief break for tea & socialising. We typically end with a waltz about 9:30 p.m.

Before 7:30 p.m.. callers and others may be testing or working on a dance in some fashion


Sunday Advanced - NOW 1000 - 1200, was 2 - 4 p.m.
These sessions are for dancers who feel comfortable with English dance figures, such as double figure eights and many forms of heys.
It is also intended for those who learn quickly and independently.

Sometimes a public dance workshop or session of instruction is available on another day

See this page & notices from our mailing list for news of that, otherwise weekly social dance on Thursday begins at 7:30 p.m.

Dance parties or workshops may take place on other days -- see our home page for open events
