Bournemouth Folk Dance Club is a happy & friendly group of around 40 members who enjoy an evening of dancing & socialising.
The Club meets at the Annunciation Church Hall in Bournemouth. It has a superbly sprung dance floor that encourages us all to get onto the floor & enjoy the dance.
We dance a wide variety of dances, from the old rustic country type - Barn Dances, through the `Pride & Prejudice` style of courtly dances (Regency & Playford dances), & the Scottish style of dances, to new modern day American Squares & Contra dances & new English style dances. There is a wealth of old folk dances: being re-interpreted by experienced historians; & new folk dances and tunes being created. New creations come in all types of styles: historical English, more squares and contra dances & unusual configurations. We will give any English, American or Scottish folk dance a go!
We encourage all. New members to dance, experienced members to try out their calling skills, & anyone wishing to play in a band. We even have some members who create their own dances.
Anyone is welcome to come & join us every Monday, from 7:30pm to 10:00pm - see the Findus page for where. See the Programme page for what's on - when we're open, & who's calling each week.
Do come along – stay for 1 week (your first visit is free), two weeks, or maybe stay a lifetime if you find the exercise, dancing and company are for you.
