Our regular season Saturday dances are bimonthly, usually the 2nd and 4th Saturdays (but check the calendar for exceptions), at the Friends Meeting House on the Oakland/Shadyside border. In addition to our regularly scheduled dances, Gaye is again organizing caller practices one Wednesday a month throughout the spring. For dancers this is a free chance to see the dances from a caller perspective.
Never heard of English Country Dancing? If you've seen the movies Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility, you have indeed seen this form of social dance. But English Country Dancing (ECD) is not an obscure relic! While this traditional form of dance has been around for several hundred years, it's still thriving today. There is English Country Dancing all over the United States. The dances that we enjoy date back as far as 1651—or to the latest hot favorite composed yesterday. The Country Dance & Song Society of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania dances regularly throughout the year in Pittsburgh’s Oakland district, within walking distance of several major universities. We are nationally affiliated with the Country Dance and Song Society: See http://www.cdss.org for information about activities nationwide.
Join us for an evening of participatory dance and music. All dances taught; no partner necessary; attire casual; free beginners’ workshops at every dance.
