Welcome to the website for English Country Dancing in New Haven


Stay home, warm and safe.

It is with great regret that we announce that we are cancelling the Elm City Assembly due to the too-great possibility of hazardous conditions on Saturday. 

 There is a storm watch for southern Connecticut on Saturday, with the forecast of snow falling during the day, which would make keeping the High Lane Club parking lot plowed a challenge, and high winds, making driving dangerous.
We want to thank everyone who signed up for this year’s ball.  We are looking into the possibility of rescheduling for the spring, depending on when dates are open at the High Lane Club, and will let you know more once that has been determined.


This year’s ball will take place Saturday, January 23, 2016, at the delightful High Lane Club and we are happy to announce that Graham Christian has agreed to take on the role as Master of Ceremonies, and the program will remain the same.  That gives everyone an extra year to practice, and we expect you will all have “The Amazed Geneticist” down to a T by next year.
