Ruth writes: Toronto has lots of places where you can learn to folk dance – for free or almost free.  We’ve heard good things about the above weekly Friday dances for $8 close to the Spadina subway station. On October 2, it will be free.

There’s also English Country Dances which should be back indoors in October.   See: http://www.torontoenglishdance.ca .

And this Wednesday, on September 16, the Tibetan Women’s Association is hosting an outdoor Gorshey dance from 6 to 8pm. at Parkdale Collegiate, weather permitting.  In case it rains, it will be at 20 West lodge. Tea and light snacks will be served. For what Gorshey dance looks like – and it’s easy to learn – see:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_UlrHNsGcU. Parkdale Collegiate is at 209 Jameson Ave. For further information please contact the TWA at email: twa.ontario@gmail.com.

And of course there are frequent  dance lessons of all varieties at Harbourfront.
