Country Dancing English Style with Nell & Nicolas Broadbridge

Remember Pride & Prejudice? Recall the moment when Mr Darcy danced with Elizabeth Bennet?   How would you describe it – graceful? elegant?  Not quite Strip the Willow, but it’s not so different.English Country Dancing is very similar to Scottish – just more relaxed. Dances are Reels, Jigs, Waltz time and smooth "triple time” in a variety of rhythms and paces. Steps are walking, skipping and skip change.  Formations are in 3 or 4 couple sets, long sets, squares and circles.  Music is based on traditional and classical tunes played in a driving, rhythmic style. Come & see – come & try!..
