2022-23 B.R.I.D.E. Folk Dance

Bognor Regis International Dance Ensemble

The group has transformed again, now we consist mostly of parents with children not yet confident enough to dance in public. Older dancers spent much of 2023 celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the Felpham & Middleton Country Dance Club by dancing English folk dances at events, parties and displays.

Here are just a few pictures taken at class, joining in with the English dances at a Fete and an event in a country house.

We celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2022; a workshop from Brian Dowsett, a Balkan specialist, made it special and gave us a chance to learn a few more Balkan dances. We demonstrated fourteen different dances from Russia at the Southdowns Festival. (for details of costumes see Costume Display.)
