“Quadrille Club, started in 1984, is essentially a venue for the enjoyment of 19th century dance in a social setting. It is not an intensive teaching class. At each meeting some time is spent on basic steps and figures but the length of this time is varied to suit the technical ability of those present. There is no fixed membership and although there is a core of regular attenders, newcomers are always welcome. We are pleased that our programme appeals to many nationalities and we have regular attenders from Scotland, Norway, Poland, France and Czech Republic. These, together with our English dancers, give us a regular attendance of about 25-35.
There is no age limitation BUT these dances are very lively and a set of quadrilles may require one to be continuously active for 15 minutes at a time. You will also be expected to attempt the correct steps of the period and at no time is walking the figures allowed!! …”
