Monday Night English Country Dances


BFMS is having in-person events again! Being mindful of the need to protect those most at risk of infection from Covid-19, we are requiring pre-registration and proof of vaccination for many events. These requirements may be adjusted depending on the venue (indoor vs outdoor) and the trends of Covid-19. Pre-registration links for each event will lead to both a waiver and payment capability. We look forward to seeing you in-person soon!

The Baltimore Folk Music Society presents English Country Dancing from 8:00 p.n. to 10:30 p.m. every other Monday at the Church of the Nativity. 6112 York Rd. Baltimore, MD 21212. Admission is $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers, Under 21 and full-time students with IDs: $7 for members, $15 for nonmembers. Beginners are always welcome. All dances are taught.

English Country Dancing is joyous, lively movement to elegant music in a friendly, informal setting. The figures are simple, and each dance is taught and walked through. New dancers are always welcome. Come alone or with a friend. These events are sponsored in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.

For more information call the BFMS hotline at 888-646-BFMS.
