We are a non-profit organization that provides an opportunity for people of all ages to learn contemporary, traditional and historic English dances in a creative, fun-filled environment.

Club Description

Classes

The English Dancing Club is a great place to learn new or fine tune existing dance skills. We have weekly classes during our Fall and Winter terms. A Challenge Class meets twice a month throughout the year. It is a place for more experienced dancers to focus on mastering complex dances.

Dances vary from simple to challenging and are taught by talented instructors. Beginners are always welcome to join our Regular classes as our experienced instructors will ease them into learning the patterns and steps that make for joyful dancing experiences. Partners are encouraged but not necessary as we dance in non-gendered sets.

Special Events

Several times a year, we host special dance events. Check out the Calendar page for event locations, dates, and times. All events have live music by The Fine Companions Band and consist of the dances we have been learning.

Ticket prices for our Special Events cover the cost of hall rentals and advertising.

Charitable Donations

We use extra funds raised at our Special Events to proudly support Winnipeg Harvest and other local charities.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

We meet once a year to elect the club executive. This is also the time we make important decisions regarding our club. All members are encouraged to attend. The evening often ends with dancing. It’s an important evening but also a fun one!
