Colonial Heritage Dancers

Throughout the colonial period in America, country dancing was the principal recreation of all the social classes.  

Country dances were a pleasing alternative to the more formal dances of the aristocracy, which required great skill to perform. The term "country dance" refers to the less formal dances done at the country homes and estates. 

The Colonial Heritage Dancers is a social group that enjoys 18th Century dancing.  We meet two times a month, at Historic Bethabara Park in Winston-Salem, NC, to practice and socialize.  We practice old favorites and learn new dances.   We also hold special dances twice a year, a Springtime Assembly and in December a Christmas Ball.

The Colonial Heritage Dancers are available to lend a "Colonial American" flavor to your special events.  The group draws from an extensive repertoire of dances from the late 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries.  We perform dances that are re-created from period manuscripts, diaries, and historic documents.
