English Country Dancing (ECD) – 4 sessions: Sat am, Sat pm, Sat evening, Sun am

ECD is boisterous, elegant, silly, intricate, lyrical and bouncy, sometimes simultaneously. Melissa's ECD workshops are intended to be particularly contra-friendly, emphasizing both the similarities and differences between contra and ECD. Wonderful music for all sessions,including the Saturday evening English dance (7:30-9:00) by Old World Charm School.
