ENGLISH COUNTRY DANCING
The Dance English Country Dance began as a combination of formal court dance and folk dance in the 1600s.  It became wildly popular throughout Europe during the next two centuries. It was revived 100 years ago.  New dances continue to be devised to this day.

Everyone welcome!

We welcome dancers of all ages and backgrounds. Beginners welcome.  LGBTQ+ friendly. You do not need to bring a dance partner; we switch partners every dance.  All dances are taught by a dance caller, as we move in graceful patterns with a walking step to beautiful music.  We dance for our own enjoyment, not as a performance or competition. Please avoid perfume and scented grooming products. Free Admission on Fridays All of our regular Friday evening dances have Free Admission for everyone. Donations are welcome.
All TECDA dances are currently suspended.  Please check back here for updates. We are doing “virtual” dances over Zoom.  Contact us for information. We dance every Tuesday evening at Willowdale Presbyterian Church, 38 Ellerslie Avenue, North York (map); and every Friday evening at the Ralph Thornton Centre, 765 Queen Street East, Toronto (map), usually on the second floor. All welcome; no experience required. [More info]
