We meet at the Leisure Centre in Holywell Lane, Rubery, B45 9AD on Tuesday evenings from 8pm – 10pm. The club is a very informal meeting of people like you, who want to have a go at a few folk dances, perhaps in a less frenetic environment than a public barn dance. We are a small group, averaging twenty people or so each week, and we try to do a wide mixture of dances ranging from simple fun-to-do dances to more complex dances which need a little more thought and practice. We do dances from a range of sources: American square dances, Traditional, Playford and Pat Shaw… some that have been collected in France and further afield… the range is endless.

Why don’t you come along and join in the fun? All we ask is a very modest admission fee of £2.50 and for that you even get a good cuppa and a biscuit thrown in! (no…not thrown into the cup) It would be sensible to email or call first, just to make sure of the location of our dance hall, and to ensure that we are not for some reason having a “night off”.

We have loads of really good callers visit us from time to time: including Barry Jones, Brian Stanton, Roger Middleton, Eve Evans and Arnold Gray. That, together with the great musicians who come and play for us, makes for a superb evening’s dancing, time and again. Music is normally provided by our in house bands “Treble Clef or The Rubery Big Band”.
