Bournemouth (Westhill) Folk Dance Club

The Bournemouth Folk Dance Club is only a small part of the English Folk Dance scene and the following links will take you to various organisations, publications and local clubs.

There are two places in England, dedicated to the enjoyment & preservation of english country dances. They are: Cecil Sharp House, in Kensington, London, & Halsway Manor, in the Quantocks, near Taunton. 

There are also links to new & old English Country Dance composers who have produced books, CDs & websites of their dances. We are forever in their debt.
