English Country Dance is a living tradition of social folk dance with roots that go back to Elizabeth I. Village Green has been bringing English dancing to Winnipeg since 1976. We dance historic dances that were first written down in the 1650s, and dances that are written by our own members every year. We’d love for you to join us.

Virginia’s Legacy

We are saddened by the recent passing of Virginia Stevens, a much-loved member of Village Green and The Fine Companions.

Virginia’s funeral will be held on Tuesday, May 7 th at 10:00 am at Neil Bardal Funeral Home, 3030 Notre Dame Avenue.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Virginia’s Legacy Fund with the Village Green English Dancers. Donations can be made via cheque or etransfer at Village Green English Dancers – 322-2008 St. Mary’s Road, Winnipeg MB, R2N 0L2 or [email protected].

We meet on Wednesday evenings at Harrow United Church in River Heights for a two-hour class. We learn new dances, and get a chance to practice them. Each year we have two terms–fall and winter. There’s a big celebratory dance with live music at the end of each one, and a smaller one part-way through.

– No dance experience is necessary.
– Bring a friend, or just yourself.
– Wear comfortable, flat-soled shoes.
– A moderate level of fitness is required.
