Visit the FSGW English Country Dance and find a combination of fun and refined dancing, led by talented callers who are accompanied by top-notch musicians playing tunes that are unique to each dance. On a given evening you may hear anything from the ubiquitous piano and fiddle to the flute, dulcimer, oboe, concertina, bassoon, cello, or viola.
Dance on a wood floor in the upstairs community room of the Glen Echo Town Hall. Enjoy the friendly crowd, known for its welcoming nature. The dance runs from 8:00 to 10:30 p.m. with a break for light refreshments. New people are always welcome, and you don’t need to bring a partner. We’ll help you learn. Our dancers who are sensitive to fragrances will be grateful if you use them lightly.
The Town Hall is climate controlled: Air Conditioned for enjoyable dancing during the hot, muggy, Washington Summers, and comfortably warm in the Winter too.
