Who We Are
The Hamilton English Country Dancers was formed in 2007 by Les Francey and it held dances most Thursdays at the Dundas Memorial Community Centre. Les frequently shared the calling with long-time English Country dancer Lynn Macintyre. Now he and Tara Bolker alternate leading the dances each week. HECD currently dances every Thursday evening at Melrose United Church in Hamilton.
