TECDA (Toronto English Country Dance Assembly) dances every Friday – doors open at 6:45pm and dancing starts at 7pm and continues until 9pm with a short break in the middle.
Join us for an online version of our local Friday night English Country Dance. New pandemic dances and old favourites modified for one or two dancers taught and called to recorded music. Free admission - please support the musicians who have provided our recordings by donations online if you can.
Dances are held on Zoom – a fresh link is emailed each week to our list, send an email to email@example.com to be added.
Please donate to the musicians that we have used on our recordings:
CDSS has a donation page here, where you can donate to a freelance musician or caller. You are welcome to choose an artist of your choice, but the list loads in random order, so you can also simply donate to whoever is top on the list when you load the page, knowing that others will be donating to someone else, and everybody ends up getting a little help in a difficult time. Or, if you like the specific music we play at the dance, we encourage you to donate to (or buy music from) the musicians whose music we use.
