English Ceilidh (ECeilidh)

Dance to Musicians of the Oxford Social Sunday Sessions with None presented by Bal Miniscule/Oxford Social Sunday Sessions

It's not a normal ceilidh in several important ways: * The musicians will play random tunes just like musicians do at pub sessions * No one knows what they're going to play until they start * However, the musicians often play mainly "English" tunes, IE, those suitable for English Ceilidh * Dancers will listen to the tune about once through, as a team, quickly identify a well-known dance that fits and dance it - an interesting challenge :-) * This means that it's not going to work with beginners, sorry! * There's room for around 8 couples More information here: http://balmini.org/news.php#link22012019

What is "English Ceilidh"? - a quick guide

It's what used to be called 'country dancing' or 'barn dance' but nowadays tends have better, more varied music (often 'folk') and is danced with more energy and skill. A 'caller' explains each dance, walks you through it and paying attention at that point will get even the complete beginner through the dancing
