What is English Country Dance (ECD)?
ECD has been enjoyed by communities from courts to country folk since the Middle Ages. It was danced by our nation’s founders, including George Washington, and is often featured in TV and movies such as “Turn: Washington’s Spies” and Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”. It is a group form of dancing (specific partners not required) where participants danced steps called by a caller, similar to square dancing, but slower and more elegant, with exquisite music.
