General Info

Classes

Weekly classes take place Wednesday evenings from 7:15 to 9:30 pm upstairs at the Harrow United Church, 955 Mulvey Ave in Winnipeg Manitoba. Beginners are always welcome.

Class teaching is shared by our gifted instructors who impart their enthusiasm and expertise. Some of our instructors have written dances and music that we enjoy learning and sharing with other ECD organizations!

Dances range from novice to expert, lively to elegant, historical to modern. Think of Jane Austen or Medieval / Renaissance eras!

Rule #1:  Smile a lot. You are here to have fun.

Rule #2:  New movements, steps, and terminology will be thoroughly explained and demonstrated in class. Don’t worry if they sound complicated right now. Our teachers will explain the rules and other technical stuff in class!
