As a way of getting back into some dancing safely, and perhaps explore new dances, we are running a couple folk dance week.  With two morning workshops each day, and a dance every evening, we hope to give the traditional ceilidh, contra, and social dancers a new insight into the world of couple folk dance. You are free to relax, walk or sightsee in the afternoons.

The workshops and dances will take place in the Long Room, the main dance area at the Manor. The floor will be divided into 3m squares, with the ambition of each couple dancing in their square. You might come as a couple, or we’ll try and find you a suitable partner prior to the event, and hopefully you stay with them for the course. Numbers are limited. There will be daily temperature testing, hand sanitising, and ventilation, to make it as safe an environment as possible.

We plan to teach and dance a variety of dances. Certainly from Great Britain, France and Scandinavia, but we’re taking dances from a whole range of countries and genres, all with the simple theme of couple dance.

The teaching and calling will be shared between Megan Hatto, and Erin Mansfield. The music is Will Allen on melodeon and fiddle, and Christine Dyer on fiddle and nyckelharpa.
