The Monadnock Folklore Society presents the last in its 2018 series of English Country Dances with the theme “Dance Around Monadnock.”
On May 20th from 2:00 to 5:00 PM, the dance will be held at the Town Hall in Nelson, NH, with Sue Rosen teaching dances that will appeal to all, from novice to experienced dancers.
English Country Dance is a form of social dance that harkens back to the days of Jane Austen and “Pride and Prejudice”, but its roots extend further back in time. Its traditions and innovations continue right up to the present.
Lovely music will be provided by fiddler Mary Lea and pianist Bruce Rosen.
Hauntingly beautiful tunes, elegant yet simple steps, friendly people and beautiful surroundings combine to make an English Country Dance a pleasant and energizing experience. No special clothing is required, but comfortable clothes and soft-soled shoes are recommended.
Beginners and singles are welcome and all dances are taught throughout the session. Admission is $10. For more information call (603) 876-4211 or visit http://www.monadnockfolk.org. The Monadnock Folklore Society has presented dances and concerts of traditional music since 1982.
