The Ball

Our “George Washington Ball” is an annual event, typically held the first Saturday in March. The 2018 ball will be held March 3, with music by “Hot Toddy” (Melissa Running, Anna Rain, and Edith Coakley-Stowe.)  More information, including a flier for registration, will be posted on our “George Washington Ball” page when available.

Williamsburg Workshop

We offer a workshop every year (usually in January), inviting a caller from outside the community to help us work on technique and expand our repertoire. Recent instructors have included Joanna Reiner, George Fogg, Robin Hayden, Graham Christian, Joseph Pimentel, and Jenny Beer.

Robin Hayden teaches English Country Dancing at the 2013 Williamsburg ECD Workshop. This is hosted by the Williamsburg Heritage Dancers, a colonial and English country dance group in Williamsburg, Virginia.
