Dances range from lively dances that would have been danced at English village celebrations years ago, the kind you might have seen at a Barn Dance, to the elegant dances enjoyed by upper classes such as those seen in Pride and Prejudice and other costume dramas.
It is not necessary to bring a partner to any dance but do bring soft soled shoes. No dance experience is required although beginners should, if possible, start at one of our regular Dance Classes. Dress is usually casual although we do host the occasional dress-up events such as the Saturday Ball in our annual 'A Trip to Ottawa' dance weekend.
In consideration of dancers with allergies or sensitivities we request that you do not use perfumes and other strongly-scented products. For occasional pot-luck events avoid the use of nuts.

The wind howled; roofs blew off; trees down; the power went off and the lights went out. It was a minute before the first dance on May/4th.
That didn't stop the Friday dance. The line moved near the windows not only for light but to avoid the bucket under the leak in the roof.
What about music? No problem, Jamie's Blutooth speaker was charged and the music was on his phone.
We got in five dances but finally had to call it a day after the sun set. Thanks to the Mlacak Centre staff who lit the way out.
