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.

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.
