English country dances are social dances, generally for groups of three to five couples, or for any number of couples in a longways-set or a circle. They are usually performed with either a dance-walk, or (relatively) simple steps - much of the interest deriving instead from the floor patterns and interaction between dancers. Originating in England, they spread to colonial America and mainland Europe.
