Herstmonceux Folk Dance Club

Herstmonceux, Wealden District

Wednesday 8.00pm - 10.00pm,
Bodle Street Village Hall, Herstmonceux

There are many fine country dance composers in the 20th century but by general consent Patrick Shaw (1917-1977) stands supreme amoungst them. Some of his dances such as Another Nancy's Fancy and Levi Jackson's Rag are staple fare in our clubs. Others, such as John Talis's Canon are amoungst the more difficult attempted by most clubs, but if you are a capable dancer and have mastered all these, you may nurse a secret ambition to go on to the really tricky Pat Shaw dances. Anyone for Four Winds?

If your answer is YES, we invite you to come along to the Herstmonceaux club where we try to get to grips with the challenging dances (as well as the old favourites) in a friendly, laughter filled atmosphere. For contact details and map see our East Sussex Library Page.
