English Country Dances


COVID19 update: The March 11th, March 18th, and March 25th dances are cancelled due to concerns about coronavirus. We will post an update about the status of our April dances as soon as a decision has been made.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The FSGW weekly English Country Dance offers delightful dancing, led by talented callers, accompanied by top-notch musicians playing a wide variety of instruments.  The crowd is friendly; new dancers are always welcome and can get an informal lesson if they arrive around 7:30. You don't need to bring a partner, or dress up.  

We dance in the upstairs community room of the Glen Echo Town Hall, which has a springy wood floor and is air-conditioned for dancing comfort in hot weather.  Some dancers are sensitive to fragrances, and they are grateful when you skip the perfume and scented after-shave.


Every year in May, usually on the 2nd Saturday, we hold a dress-up ball, the Washington Spring Ball.

 When: Wednesday from 8:00 - 10:30 p.m.
We dance every Wednesday throughout the year, unless that day is a major holiday. However, note we only post our schedule of upcoming dances for the next 1 to 2 months.
