There are usually two English Country Dances each month, on the First and Third Sunday afternoons of the month (unless otherwise noted on the schedule below). Our dances are held at the Decatur Recreation Center dance studio, located at 231 Sycamore Street, Decatur, Georgia 30030 (unless otherwise noted).
Children 14 years of age and under dance free of charge. No childcare is provided - parents should read the information on the For Parents page.
The Newcomer's class runs from 1:30PM - 2:00PM. ANYONE NEW to English Country dancing should plan on attending this class. This is a teaching session, during which the caller teaches basic dance figures and explains how the dance is oriented and some basic dance conventions.
After the Newcomer's class, the regular dance runs from 2PM - 5PM with a break for socializing & refreshments. (Dancers are encouraged to bring snacks!)
