Frances Richardson

Frances started dancing when she was 17 and has called at many Festivals, including Broadstairs, Sidmouth, Lichfield and Southam, plus dance weekends, Playford Balls, days of dance, and Saturday dances across the country. Frances has also been the dance director for the Lichfield Folk Festival for the last 20 years, guiding it through the difficult years to renewed success.

She enjoys a variety of dance styles and you can expect a thoroughly good mixture. Whilst English Country Dance and Playford was her first and enduring love, she also does American and Scottish (she is a qualified RSCDS teacher). Above all Frances believes that dancing should be enjoyable, and guides clearly but with a light touch.
