Berkeley Experienced English Country Dance

Are you comfortable dancing heys for three and double figures of eight? Do you find it satisfying to move in time to the music and to match your fellow dancers surging in a line?

Welcome to the Fourth Saturday Experienced English Dance!

We spend some time each evening paying attention to styling, to make the dances go more smoothly and look nicer. Each program includes a few challenging dances, as well as many familiar and favorite dances that we can do with quick walk-through calling. Come enjoy the camaraderie, physical and mental stimuli, and the glorious music.

(If you have friends to whom you would like to introduce the joys of English Country Dancing, please bring them on the second and fourth Wednesdays to the dances in Berkeley, or to the San Francisco, Palo Alto, Peninsula or South Bay dances. Check the listings on the quarterly BACDS calendar flyer or on the calendar at www.bacds.org)

Finally, bikes may be brought into the facility provided that the wheels are clean.
