Bournemouth Folk Dance Club is a friendly, happy group, who meet weekly, & enjoy an evening of English folk dancing & socialising.
We dance a wide variety of dances, from the old rustic country barn type to `Pride & Prejudice` style of courtly, regency dances; through to more modern styles such as American circles, squares & contras. As well as lots of information about the old styles of dancing; there is now a wealth of new folk dances and tunes being created all over the world. These are in all types of styles: historical English, modern English, American squares, contra & other types of dances. We will give any English, Scottish or American folk dance a go!
Recorded music is generally used with club callers; but we do frequently support local musicians, together with guest callers, to come & give that added zest of a live performance.
