Come join us for a bal miniscule at the Isis Farmhouse (a lovely food-pub on the river in Oxford) on Sun 11 September! Bring your family, friends, children, loved ones and come dance with us! Social dances like this with a mix of couple and group dances are part of the ‘bals-folk’ tradition in many countries in Europe. There will be slow mazurkas, gliding waltzes, lively polkas and schottisches, then over to lines of people advancing and returning in bourrees, or circling each other in Breton dance.
This is an earlier session than usual - Oxfolk have organised a dance with the marvellous Topette!! in Kennington the same day, so we will all be heading on to there at 4. You will be able to buy tickets here when they become available. While you're there, buy a ticket for Blowzabella in November, which will also be wonderful.
We'll start at 12pm with a newcomers' workshop to get everyone up to speed (it's simpler than you think!) 
The atmosphere of the whole afternoon will be relaxed and friendly, and there's always a chance to chat between dances too.
Food - the Isis serves food, but it is slooooow. Make sure to order well before you're getting hungry.
Getting there - it takes about half an hour from Oxford train station / centre of town - link to directions here
Location The Isis River Farmhouse, Iffley
