The Folklore Society of Greater Washington

Furthering the understanding, investigation, appreciation, and performance of the traditional folk music and folklore of the American people.

English Country Dance every Wednesday from 8:00 - 10:30 p.m. at the Glen Echo Town Hall, located at 6106 Harvard Ave, just off MacArthur Blvd a few blocks west of Glen Echo Park, upstairs from the Glen Echo Post Office. We dance every Wednesday, all year, unless that day is a major holiday.

Admission: FSGW, BFMS, ATDS & CDSS members: $10; Non-members: $12; Students: $5

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 dont need to bring a partner. Well 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.
