Southport Folk Dance Club

Thursdays 7.30 - 9.30 pm
from September to May

Our sessions run from the beginning of September to the end of May with breaks for Christmas, Easter and election night.

We learn dances from the gentler end of the English country dance tradition – no bells, sticks, hankies or getting very dizzy. Just pleasant exercise, good company and dances from the 18th century to the present day. If you have enjoyed a barn dance, or fancy trying the dancing you have seen on TV adaptations of Jane Austen, then we may be the club for you.

New members are always welcome with or without a partner. No prior knowledge or special costume is required. All dances are taught, “walked through” and then danced to music with a caller reminding everyone of the moves. There is plenty of time between dances to chat and make new friends, and lots of laughter when we make mistakes.

There is a weekly charge of £3.00 which includes a cup of tea and a biscuit at half time.
