CDS Boston Centre
Wednesday English Dance Program

 

The Boston Centre offers English country dancing every Wednesday night.
All dances are taught; no experience is necessary, nor do you need to come with a partner.

Dances are led by Barbara Finney, Rich Jackson, Linda Nelson, Miriam Newman, and Christine Robb, along with guest leaders.

Music is by Bare Necessities and friends.

Format:
  • The entire evening will be a mix of elegantly simple to challenging dances, and traditional to contemporary dances
  • Most dances will be walked through, with teaching as needed
  • One or two may only be prompted, not walked through (and will be announced in advance)
  • English Dance Basics is offered before the dance at 7:10
  • The dance of the month is taught each week of the month (except party nights)

Location:
  The dances are held from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., at the Park Avenue Congregational Church, located at the intersection of Park Avenue and Paul Revere Road (one block from Massachusetts Avenue), in Arlington Heights, MA.

Admission:
  Newcomers and students   $4.00
  Members   $7.00
  Non-members   $9.00
  12 dance Dance Card   $75.00

The Dance Card is valid at all Wednesday dances for one year from the date of purchase and can be shared with friends and family.

Volunteering:
  Volunteers are always needed, particularly with refreshments and putting things away at the end of the dance.
