Randy Thorp and his partner, Annette Merritt, started the Gainesville English Country Dance in 2010.
Now, each session attracts between 20 to 50 dancers.
Every Monday from 7 to 9:30 p.m., the main group meets at the United Church of Gainesville on Northwest Fifth Avenue. Beginner lessons start at 6:45 p.m.
The entry cost is a $5 donation.
The theme for the Monday’s gathering (shown below) was Easter and spring celebrations.
