Then join us on Friday nights for some family fun as we learn these fun, interactive dances that have been passed down for generations. Both the slightly more formal dances from the ballrooms of Poldark, Pride and Prejudice and Victoria as well as the more laid back dances at the village celebrations. All taught in a laid back, easy manner. No dance experience necessary and children are not only welcomed, but encouraged to attend. If you can walk, you can do these dances.
