Enjoy a week of varied styles of Country Dance in Sidholme’s splendid Music Room. Each morning we'll dip into different dance fashions using workshop techniques which will include practising basic steps and figures, moving quickly on to dance some Playford era, then Contras & Squares, not forgetting our very own English Country Dances. Each evening will have a social atmosphere re-running some of those workshop dances in a more convivial atmosphere, and afternoons will be free to choose from organised local walks or visits or just to do as you please. So bring your walking shoes to visit beautiful Devon; bring your dancing shoes and we’ll have a ball!
