Autumn Country Dance

Take a step back in time to enjoy an evening of history and dancing!

To start out the evening, we will be entertained with a brief concert of 1940s tunes sung by the Boyer Sisters.

Following dinner, Brigid Boyer will be teaching various English and Scottish Country Dances. What is English/Scottish Country Dance? Think Pride & Prejudice crossed with the liveliness of Square Dancing and you have the general idea. English Country Dancing is not hard to do. If you have ever danced the Virginia Reel, then you are well on your way to learning the art of dancing in the style of the olden days. Everyone, both young and old, is encouraged to dance and enjoy the evening.

Our location: The Sligo Gym,
Our Date:  Oct 9th 
Our time: 6-9pm

Please bring your favorite soup and dessert to share! Wear your dancin’ shoes and be prepared to have fun!
