☼ ☼ ☼ English Country Dance | Peterborough

The Monadnock Folklore Society presents the next in its series of English Country Dances with the theme “Dance Around Monadnock.”

On March 17 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM., the dance will be held at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture (Peterborough Historical Society), 19 Grove Street, Peterborough, NH, with David Millstone teaching dances that will appeal to all, from novice to experienced dancers. Lovely music will be provided by Karen Axelrod on keyboard and Aldo Fabrizi 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.

Future dances on April 14 and May 19 will be held at the Fitzwilliam Town Hall and the Nelson Town Hall, respectively.

Beginners and singles are welcome and all dances are taught throughout the session. Admission is $10. For more information call 603.762.0235 or visit https://www.monadnockfolk.org.
