English Country Dance (in person) 

co-sponsored by FSGW 


The FSGW weekly English Country Dance offers delightful dancing, led by talented callers, accompanied by top-notch musicians playing a wide variety of instruments.  The crowd is friendly; new dancers are always welcome and can get an informal lesson if they arrive around 7:30. You don't need to bring a partner, or dress up.  

We dance in the upstairs community room of the Glen Echo Town Hall, which has a springy wood floor and is air-conditioned for dancing comfort in hot weather.  Some dancers are sensitive to fragrances, and they are grateful when you skip the perfume and scented after-shave.

When: Wednesday from 8:00 - 10:30 p.m. We dance every Wednesday throughout the year, unless that day is a major holiday.

Where: Glen Echo Town Hall. 6106 Harvard Ave, Glen Echo MD  20812
