The Monadnock Folklore Society presents the first in its series of English Country Dances with the theme “Dance Around Monadnock.” On Sunday, January 20 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM, the dance will be held at the Keene UU Church, 69 Washington Street in Keene, NH, with Brad Foster teaching dances that will appeal to all, from novice to experienced dancers. Lovely music will be provided by pianist Kate Barnes with lydia ievins on violin. 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. 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 shoes are recommended. Beginners and singles are welcome and all dances are taught throughout the session. Admission is $10.
