AVID (Awaken Village Interest in Dance) – Informal Folk Dance
Awaken Village Interest in Dance – or AVID as it is locally and affectionately known – is a community based organisation which aims to increase involvement in folk dancing and playing. It is very successful.
The dances are very informal.
- No band booked, instead, anyone who wants to play can do so.
- No amplification; this means that the dance is ready to organise, and no-one is daunted by a PA.
- An emphasis on having fun.
The dances are normally held on the second Wednesday evening of each month (the only exception being a move to the second Tuesday if a hall is not available).
The dances run from 8pm to 10.45pm which gives us time for about 10-12 dances and a finishing time to accommodate those with jobs the next day.
