Toronto English Country DancersRooted in the Past, Dancing into the Future
|Bringing English Country Dancing to the community for over 20 years! Who are we? We are a volunteer-run, not-for-profit social dance group welcoming the community to share the joy of traditional live music and dancing. Dedicated to nurturing new talent, we hold traditional music sessions and musicians' workshops, callers' workshops, dance classes and special events as well as regular local dances. All welcome! No partner or dance experience is required. What do we do? English Country Dancing is the dance form of Shakespeare, Jane Austen and Napoleon. It is done in groups, with dancers weaving intricate patterns around each other to music ranging from lively jigs and reels to dreamy and hypnotic melodies. Today there are ECD communities around the world, including Australia, Europe, Canada, and the US. When do we do it? First Saturday nights on Danforth, second and fourth Fridays in the Annex, plus workshops and special events on different times and at various locations.
