Baltimore Folk Music Society


Monday Night English Country Dances

The Baltimore Folk Music Society presents English Country Dancing from 8:00 p.n. to 10:30 p.m. every Monday at St. Mark's on the Hill Parish Hall, 1620 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville MD, (1/2 mile inside the Baltimore Beltway - I-695 - at Exit 20 South). Admission is $8 for members, $11 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.
