Welcome to the website for English Country Dancing in New Haven

Ball Update:  We are keeping a close eye on the weather report which is still changing according to the NOAA website.  We plan to make a decision about whether or not to go ahead with the Ball by late tonight.  Registrants will receive an email from the Registrar concerning this by about midnight tonight.  Information will also be posted here.  

In the event that we go through with the Ball, anyone who wishes to cancel out of traffic safety concerns will be given a full refund on their registration fees.

The 16th Annual New Haven English Country Dance Ball will take place Saturday, January 24, 2015, once again at the delightful High Lane Club.
