We intend to adjust as the situation changes. We look forward to seeing you in-person soon!

Admission is $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers, Under 21 and full-time students with IDs: $7 for members, $10 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.
