    The 2nd Sunday English Dance for Experienced Dancers is an opportunity to dance to the music of Fine Companions (and Friends).

    The dances will be a balance of familiar dances and unfamiliar dances.

    The callers will encourage dancers to incorporate style points such as quality of movement, timing, transitions and dancing with the music.

    We ask that dancers be comfortable dancing standard English Dance figures including:
    - Heys in various orientations
    - Regular and Double figure eights
    - Triple minor progressions
    - Dancing with couples outside of your group of 4
    - Straight and draw poussettes.

    If you are not familiar with these figures we recommend that you attend the PCDC Friday Night English Dance to become comfortable with these figures before attending the 2nd Sunday English Dance for Experienced Dancers. (Note: No street shoes permitted beyond the entrance of the Renaissance School )
