English Country Dances


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.
