No! Modern Pattern Dancing was developed to make the social and physical benefits of traditional folk dancing more accessible to everyone. To accomplish this it needed to be fun, easy to learn, and not beyond the physical capability of most people. There is no formal lessons or class. Dancers learn as they go according to their experience level and will begin dancing with us the moment they walk in the door. Calls and concepts are taught in a way that provides dancers with a dynamic and rewarding dance experience from the entry level on up. The individual dancer controls the level of physical impact by dancing according to their comfort level.
