Dance to Musicians of the Oxford Social Sunday Sessions with Various presented by Bal Miniscule
This is an unusual and challenging ceilidh in a pub in partnership with musicians from the Oxford Sunday Sessions. They'll play as if dancers were not there and we'll identify dances that will fit the tunes on the fly. So you need to know basic English Ceilidh dances well - there will be very little calling. It worked last month and we'd like more people to come and build on the work we've been doing dancing Bal Folk in pub music sessions.
