We are a friendly club where people of all abilities can turn up and enjoy all types of folk dancing, as well as running ceilidhs and attending events stretching from Scotland to Devon
Update as at November 3rd 2021
Dancing has still not started again at Sandbach Folk Dance club. It is clear from the “Are you dancing” emails we receive that virtually no folk dance clubs have restarted face to face dancing in the Cheshire East area where COVID rates are still rising. I know of one club dancing in masks and gloves with no touching and doors wide open. Hardly ideal for a winters evening. I also understand from our friends at Jigsmith that of two recent bookings one had to be cancelled.
We have not had a formal meeting to discuss when it is sensible to restart face to face dancing but the consensus with those I have spoken to suggest that we should next formally review when to restart should be early in the new year. To start too early with insufficient numbers of dancers and callers will not be in the best long term interest of the club.
Sandbach folk dance club meets alternate Tuesdays in the month from September through to June at Rode Heath Village Hall near Sandbach. Our dancers are of all ages and for our regular meetings members provide our own callers to either recorded music or a live band
We are affiliated to the English folk dance and song society EFDSS and dance to a variety of styles and difficulty of dances.
