Welcome to the Web Site for the English Country Dancers in Boise, Idaho.

English Country Dancing is flourishing in Boise, Idaho, USA. Our group has been meeting every Wednesday evening, during the past 13 years. We draw dancers from Boise, Boise State University, Meridian, Eagle, Nampa, Caldwell, and Parma. We are a relatively small but very enthusiastic and dedicated group that shares a passion for English Country Dance (ECD).

Our smaller size and weekly schedule allows us to spend more time on the development of our dance skills, working on important issues such as style, movement, and interaction with the others in the set. These are factors that make ECD such a magical dance experience. Some of our members participate in several of the excellent ECD workshops and balls in the western US.

Look at our dance list and you can see that among the more than 750 dances in our repertoire, we have devoted much attention to the creative, amazing, challenging, and gorgeous dances written by many modern English country dance choreographers, including: Brooke Friendly & Chris Sackett, Colin Hume, Fried de Metz Herman, Gary Roodman, Jenna Simpson, Jenny Beer, Joseph Pimentel, Kalia Kliban, Loretta Holz, Mary Devlin, Nikki Herbst, Orly Krasner, Philippe Callens, Robert & Hazel Moir, Sharon Green, Tom Amessé, Tom Cook, Victor Skowronski, and many others.

We welcome new dancers and encourage you to contact us if you would like additional information. Partners are not required. You can reach me, Gordon Dodge, at:
