About Stonesfield Folk Dance Club

Stonesfield Folk Dance Club meets each Wednesday evening from 8pm to 10pm . We welcome beginners and experienced dancers to learn more of our rich folk dance heritage. It is not necessary to have a partner if you wish to come for the first time and learn more as an experienced dancer will guide you.
All dances are walked through several times and the caller will continue and we are very lucky at Stonesfield to have two Resident Bands. The Donkey House Band sometimes number over 10, and John Graham & The Quarry Turners.
The dances range from those you may have seen in a Jane Austen Play to the type you must have enjoyed at a Barn Dance.
Several times each year we hold a weekend dance with Nationally recognised Callers & Bands. However the highlight of 2018 was the Annual Folk Dance Weekend when dancers from all 4 corners of England joined us at Stonesfield . When we welcomed The National Youth Folklore Troupe of England.
Stonesfield is affiliated to the English Folk Dance and Song Society and the Oxfordshire Folk Association and we are able to attend a wide range of events organised by them from Folk Dance Holidays, Dances, Workshops, and Music Days.
