Toronto English Country Dance Assembly
Toronto English Country Dance Assembly
Every Friday, Queen & Broadview We dance every Friday from 7:00 to 9:00 at the Ralph Thornton Centre, 765 Queen Street East (Toronto), two blocks east of Broadview Avenue. EXCEPTIONS: No dances on December 23 and 30 (2022). We are usually on the second floor. Masks required; full vaccination strongly recommended. Admission is free, although donations are helpful.
All are welcome.  Dances are taught, and prompted while being danced.  Newcomers are always welcome, and we’ll teach you what you need to know.  You don’t need to bring a partner, and most people don’t; even those who do bring a partner mostly dance with other partners, as we switch partners every dance. Dress is casual.  Wear flat, soft-soled shoes and comfortable clothes.  Please avoid perfume and scented grooming products. Here is a sample video showing what English Country Dance is like. This video contains excerpts from one of our special Saturday dances. This is a list of dances we have danced.
Every Tuesday, North York Centre We also dance every Tuesday, from 7:00 to 9:00, at Willowdale Presbyterian Church, 38 Ellerslie Avenue, just a five minute walk from North York Centre subway station.  Entrance at the east side. There is free parking at the church. Suggested donation $10. Masks required; full vaccination strongly recommended. EXCEPTION: No dance on December 27 (2022).
