About Aber ACED - American Contra and English

Aber ACED - Aberystwyth American Contra and English Country Dance Group

All dances are “walked through” first and then called during the dance – so no need to worry about memorising the steps. There’s no fancy footwork to master – it’s mostly just walking!

You don’t need to bring a partner, just your enthusiasm.

We meet in Llanbadarn Fawr Church Hall (next to the Church, where some free parking is available) every 1st Saturday afternoon of the month.

Each time there will be a ½-hour session at 2:00pm for those who have never done country dancing before (or recently) and would like a quick guide or refresher!

The main dancing is from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.

Each session costs just £3 per person (depending on numbers)! We are only charging enough to cover the hire of the hall – we provide biscuits, but please bring your own (non-alcoholic) drinks. You can come to any session at any time, just ‘pay as you go’ for each one, so do come along to see what it’s like.

Have a go and have fun!
