St Louis English Country Dance
On second Fridays and fourth Mondays, you can have yet more opportunities to enjoy English Country Dancing in St Louis. Read more at the STL ECD webiste at stlecd.org.
On Thursday nights at 7pm, you can join in playing the tunes used for English Country Dancing at Bob and Martha's house. It requires a bit of sight-reading - if you can play an instrument and read music in up to two sharps and flats, and want to play for dancing, you're in! We are also learning how to play counter-melodies and harmonies (you don't need to know how already), and are aiming to be able to play for some dances by the end of the year. Read more here...
