Classes

All classes are suspended for the time being because of Covid-19.

Our classes are for beginners and experienced dancers, everyone is welcome.
Remember, you don’t need to be Scottish, have a partner, or own a kilt!
Though a pair of soft shoes makes it much easier.

Monday Classes

The Monday classes are open to all dancers with at least one years dancing experience.

The aim of this class is to provide a rewarding, and fun, experience for those
who wish to further develop and exercise their dance skills. If the branch is
asked to provide a display, a team will be sought from the members of this
class. Attending the classes is for your enjoyment and does not commit any dancer
to taking part in a display or demonstration unless they want to.

Monday 23rd September

Monday 18th November
Monday 16th December
Monday 20 January – prepare for Burns night Sat 25 January
Monday 17 February- at St Andrews Park Hall, Somerville Road, BS6 5BZ

The class aims to:

• Seek to develop those aspects of technique which particularly contribute to the greater enjoyment of social dancing and to effective displays: phrasing, presentation and teamwork;
• Provide an opportunity to improve footwork and dancing of figures (familiarity with the more frequently encountered figures is assumed);
• Benefit from individual feedback (provided that is OK with you);
• Learn dances which could be used in a live display or demonstration video;
• Look at dances that we consider interesting to learn, and which exercise the skills we wish to develop;
• Encourage the exchange of ideas about dancing.
