Steps for Success: English Social Folk Dance Today


Cecil Sharp House, London

Join us for this practice-sharing national conference for everyone who is involved in, interested in, and cares about English social
folk dance.

This will be a lively day with case study presentations, practical workshops, advice sessions and panel discussions, asking: ‘What helps English social folk dance to thrive? What are the barriers to success and how can they be overcome?’ 

The conference is aimed at callers, dancers, teachers, organisers, leaders and musicians who work with country, ceilidh, Playford, contra, barn dance and other forms of social folk dance, with people of all ages and backgrounds, in diverse settings including dance clubs, schools, community and arts centres, healthcare settings and many more.
