Toronto English Country Dance Assembly

Weekly dances

Every Friday, Queen & Broadview

We dance every Friday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 at the Ralph Thornton Centre, 765 Queen Street East (Toronto), two blocks east of Broadview Avenue.

EXCEPTION: The Ralph Thornton Centre is closed on Good Friday, March 29; but we have special dances that day instead!

We are usually on the second floor. Check the daily schedule by the elevator.

Admission is free, although donations are helpful.

Every Tuesday, North York Centre

We also dance every Tuesday evening, from 7:00 to 9:00, at Willowdale Presbyterian Church, 38 Ellerslie Avenue, just a five minute walk from North York Centre subway station. Entrance at the east side.

There is free parking at the church.

Suggested donation $10.

All are welcome. Dances are taught, and prompted while being danced. Newcomers are always welcome, and we'll teach you what you need to know. You don't need to bring a partner, and most people don't; even those who do bring a partner mostly dance with other partners, as we switch partners every dance.

Dress is casual. Wear flat, soft-soled shoes and comfortable clothes. Please avoid perfume and scented grooming products.

Here is a sample video showing what English Country Dance is like. This video contains excerpts from one of our special Saturday dances.
