FSGW Wednesday English Country Dances
Admission price increase starting August 2014
Starting August 1, admission to the weekly dance will be $10 for members, $12 for non-members, and $5 for students. This increase is due to a rise in hall rental cost, an increase in musician and caller pay, and to give a free admission to the week's snack provider.

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: $8; Non-members: $10; 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. We welcome dancers of
all experience levels, and happily assist beginners. 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.
