Members £2.50 and Non Members £3.00

Dances will range from historic ones danced in Jane Austen’s time to contemporary ones written this century, all with appropriate accompanying music.Similar to barn dancing or ceilidhs but the dances are more sophisticated. All dances are walked through first.

Great fun and good physical exercise.  Great exercise for the brain, as you need to be able to remember a sequence.  You also need to know your right from your left!

You don’t need to come with a partner – find one when you get here.  We will be encouraging you to swap partners anyway.

Dances will be called by a member from Ainsdale Folk Dance Club.
