A delightful way to increase your activity level and ability to “think in activity.” Learn many basics of this 400 year old form of dance. Learn complete dances. Avoid habits that would embarrass you at your first ball---or the weekly Friday night community dance.
Your teacher, Rebecca Robbins, grew up in a dance studio. She performed English Country dances, Court dances, Morris and Rapper dances over three seasons for the Oregon Shakespearean Festival. She currently serves on the English Ball Committee for Portland Country Dance Community. Her experience as an Alexander Technique teacher will aid your skilled development as an English Country Dancer.
