Introducing SHOCC Dances: English Ceilidh in the South - a ceilidh series in South Hampshire for the South of England.  Dances are held in The Hilt (Cuckoo Bushes Hall), SO53 5NP.  It has a sprung oak floor, and plenty of parking; and it's only 4 minutes from J12 off the M3, near Winchester.  Doors open at 19:15 for a 19:30 start.  Dances finish at 23:00.  There will be a 20 minute or so break part way through the evening.  Bring your own (alcoholic) drinks; tap water will be available.

English Ceilidh (pronounced kaylee) is a lively, energetic, and upbeat version of English barn or country dancing, suitable for all ages.  Bands play exciting music with good rhythmic drive from a variety of musical traditions, including rock, jazz, world, and roots music as well as English, Scottish, and Irish folk music.  A caller guides novices and experienced dancers alike through each of the dances; you can turn up and have fun with no prior knowledge of what is going to happen.  Wear comfortable shoes or trainers (no stilettos please), and cool clothing; although the hall is air-conditioned you can get quite warm whilst dancing.  English Ceilidh is social dancing at its best.  Come with a partner, a group of friends, or on your own; there will be plenty of people to dance with.  Most dances are for sets of couples, rather than just a couple on their own.

Come prepared to enjoy yourself and have a great evening.
