Touchstone Folk Dance Club, Wivenhoe

About this friendly Club which was established in 1990

Written by Barry Smith

The Touchstone Folk Dance Club was formed in 1990 and has met in the Congregational Church Hall ever since, from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on a Thursday evening.

Members of this Club dance a variety of English and American folk dances. Many dances are traditional but they also include dances written in the twenty first century. Every dance is walked through and new members are assisted to enjoy the dance. They  have a different caller every week and dance to recorded music. Twice a year they have a Saturday afternoon and evening dance when they are able to have callers from further afield with a live band, otherwise the Club meet on a Thursday evening.

New members don’t have to come with a partner. Touchstone are a friendly club and anybody coming along would be made most welcome. The first session is free after that it is £2 an evening which includes refreshments.

Barry Smith said:  “Maybe you enjoyed doing Country Dancing at school or going to Barn Dances and would like to dance more regularly. Many of our members joined this way and over the years have had lots of fun and met many friendly like-minded people. However no previous experience is necessary. Please come along and give it a try.”
