Heritage Social Dance Group at Beaconsfield

Wednesdays 

New dancers are welcome for this fall’s Heritage Social Dance Group at Beaconsfield dance evenings on Wednesdays from 7:00–9:15 pm at the Beaconsfield Carriage House in Charlottetown, located on West St, behind Beaconsfield Historic House, 2 Kent St. No dance experience is needed, and a partner is not required. Social dances that are learned are from historical set dancing traditions that were popular during the 18th and 19th centuries and are still danced today around the world—Scottish country, English country, quadrilles, and round dances. Each evening time will be devoted for beginners and less experienced dancers to learn basic steps and formations as they occur in simple dances. There will also be more complex dances and formations for experienced dancers. In addition to regular classes, group members dance from time to time in the community at seniors’ homes and at events such as Highland Games and heritage fairs. A dance party in early December will feature a program of favourite dances from the autumn classes. Info/to register, contact: Karen Beauregard, This email address is being protected from spambots.
