Are you an Advanced Dancer?

If you need to be helped through certain figures or steps, these evenings are not for you.

You are probably ready if

  • You tend to give help to your partner more than you rely on help from your partner.
  • You can dance most longways dances competently even if the caller stops prompting after the second or third round.
  • You have been doing English country dancing one or more years.
  • You can execute all the ECD moves below, given the name alone and no further prompting:
    • double figure of eight
    • double 1/2 figure of eight
    • Rights and Lefts with hands and without twiddles
    • mirror hey
    • open ladies' chain
    • cloverleaf turn single
    • double progression
    • triple minor progression
