We hope to return to dancing from Monday 6th September 2021, but this depends upon the government’s decision about lifting Covid-19 restrictions on indoor group activities. As we have not danced for over a year, our classes will run for two hours from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. to enable us to build fitness gradually. Details will be sent to all members along with membership renewal information during the Summer months.
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 7.00 to 7.30 p.m. we concentrate on basic steps and formations and use these in popular, enjoyable dances that everyone can do. Later in the evening we try more challenging dances, but there is always someone who will help you.
After our refreshment break at 8.45 p.m. one of our volunteer dance leaders takes over and the final hour is devoted to social dancing. All dances are recapped and (if necessary) walked through.
There is something for everyone in Scottish Country Dancing – physical and mental exercise, wonderful music, sociability and a good laugh.
