This year the Day School will be on Saturday 10th November at St Peter's Church Hall, Henleaze, BS9 4LD. The Day School will be for dancers only, followed by a Day School Dance in the evening (so there won't be a Musicians' Day School).
The teacher this year will be Janet Johnston, and the musician for the classes will be Judith Muir. The evening dance will be to music from Craigellachie.
The morning class starts at 10:15 (following registration from 9:45), ends about 12:30, and is for dancers with a basic knowledge of formations and steps. The afternoon class starts at 2:15, ends at 4:30 and is for more proficient dancers who have a good knowledge of all formations.
A meal of soup and rolls will be provided after the classes at a nominal charge of £3 for those who want to stay for the dance at 6:30.
Last year we held the Bristol day school on Saturday 11th November 2017. During the day, there was a Dancers' Day School and a Musicians' Day School, followed by a Dance in the evening.
The Dancers' Day School, with tutor Tom McKinlay and musician Bob Shakespeare, was at St Monica's Trust, Henleaze from 9:45 (for 10:15 start) to 4:30pm.
Following the huge success of the 2015 event, we held our second Musicians' Day School, this time with George Meikle as tutor. It was at St Peter's Church Hall from 10:15am to 4:30pm.
In the evening of the Day Schools there was a dance at St Peter's Church Hall, Henleaze, starting at 6:30pm. Musicians attending the Day School were invited to play, so there was a full stage of musicians, led by George Meikle.
