Invite Friends/Help Spread The News
Fall lessons are especially beginner-friendly; this is the time of year we start with the most basic formations and steps and thoughtfully learn dances in a way that gradually increases familiarity.  If you have always meant to try Scottish Country Dance, this is the perfect time!  Beginners get a price break for their first session of 6 lessons.
St. Andrew’s Celtic Faire
St. Andrew’s (19th & Bridgeport) is holding their annual Celtic Faire on Saturday, Oct. 21st and has asked us to do a demo and lead audience participatory dancing.  We can demo either familiar dances (White Cockade, Guidman of Balangigh, etc.) or something new depending on the interest of those available and willing to dance that day.  Please let know if you can be a dance ambassador that day.  I usually a request a mid-day time slot (1-2 pm or there about).
Proposed Advanced Class
We have had several requests for an “advanced” class.  This class would have three differences from our “all-levels” classes.
1) Knowledge of  basic formations will be assumed and these will not be taught during class. I can provide a list of what is considered a “basic” formation.
2) Knowledge of basic steps will be assumed. Step work instruction will focus on fine-tuning to increase a dancer’s ability to dance up to speed without injury and look decent doing so.
3) Dances may often involve fast tunes and continuous dancing, so a high energy level will be helpful.
We are considering doing this once each month BEFORE the regular class.  A minimum of 6 dancers will be needed to make this class happen.  To pay for the additional room rental, an additional charge will be necessary.  It would be $4 maximum, and less if we have more interested dancers.  Please email me if you might be interested.
