Welcome to the Old Time (Classical) Dance Society website.
Our Society was formed in 1984 with the aim of keeping Old Time dancing alive and initially had 50 founder members. Throughout those years members have formed dance clubs in their local areas. Each club provides regular dances where you can enjoy the elegant style of Old Time sequence dancing. The Society is managed by a committee of volunteers who are elected annually by the members.
If you have danced Old Time previously, or are keen to start a new hobby, maybe interested in meeting new friends, why not join us and help ‘Keep Old Time Dancing Alive’. Find your local dance club here.
