English Country Dancing

December 8, 2016 - 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Location: 
RCAH Theater
362 Bogue Street
East Lansing, MI
United States

Have you seen the dances they do in films based on Jane Austen novels? Now RCAH students can experience such an interdisciplinary dose of literature, history, dance, drama, music, romance, and combinatorics!

At 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 8, the Lansing English Country Dancers will be holding their next event in a series of dances held in the RCAH Theater on the second Thursday of every month. The dates for 2016-17 include:

  • January 12, 2017
  • February 9, 2017
  • March 16, 2017 (third Thursday because of MSU spring break)
  • April 13, 2017

The Lansing English Country Dancers offer instruction in the figures and sequences of English dances at all events. No experience is necessary. Participants are encouraged to come alone, bring a friend, or come as a group. They change partners for each dance, so it is not necessary to come as a couple. 

Wear comfortable clothes that allow freedom of movement and bring clean, flat, nonslip shoes. The event starts with a brief introductory session for beginners at 7 p.m. and ends at 9:30 p.m.

This event is free to MSU students, $6 general admission, and $4 for other students.
