We look forward to singing and dancing together.

"Gentle English" are English country dances from all periods selected to be gentle on the knees, hips, feet, and backs of the dancers. Some dances will be easy, some difficult, but none will stress the joints.

Examples include such favorites as Mr. Isaac's Maggot, Elizabeth, Miss DeJersey's Memorial, Margaret's Waltz, and Alice.
