Our Spring Term starts on Monday 24th January 2022. During the Autumn term our classes ran for two hours from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. and this proved popular with most people, so we shall continue with those timings – please bring your own refreshments, as we will not be having a tea break.
We meet once a week on a Monday evening between September and May to indulge our passion for Scottish Country Dancing. Dancers of all abilities are welcome – you don’t need a partner and you don’t need any special clothing or equipment, just flat, flexible shoes. We are a friendly bunch and you will be made most welcome.
Our venue is Wistaston Memorial Hall, 75 Church Lane, Wistaston CW2 8ER. The class is led by Liz Bruynooghe, an experienced teacher of Scottish Country Dancing with the patience of a saint! Liz is ably supported by a team of members who lead us through the dances in the second part of the evening.
From 7.30 p.m. we keep it simple – we start with a warm-up, followed by practice of the steps and formations in the context of popular social dances. Later in the evening we try some more challenging dances, but there is always someone who will help you.
We are not having a refreshment break at present – please bring your own water or flask of tea and take a break when you need to. All dances are recapped and most are walked through at least once.
There is something for everyone in Scottish Country Dancing – physical and mental exercise, wonderful music, sociability and a good laugh.
