The Spring Dance will be at Shirley Community Centre on 16 March, dancing to live music - should be a great evening! It's ticket-only, and supper is provided - contact Nicola or visit www.birmingham-rscds.org.uk for all the details.
Is this event suitable for beginners? Is it for experienced people or will there be a class? I went last night to another venue for a dance lesson but was asked to sit through a dance as the instructor thought I wouldn't be able to cope. Rita.
Hi Rita - for this event, each of the dances will just be walked through once, so it's aimed at people who have some experience of dancing. That said, you could come along and buy a spectator ticket, so you can still enjoy the atmosphere, music and the food (and we might be able to help you to dance a couple of simple dances!) I hope that helps, Nicola
Thank you Nicola but I will give it a miss in that case. I just need to learn the Scottish dancing quickly in preparation for my son's forthcoming wedding and spectating I don't think will help me that much. I wish it was possible to have private lessons but I suppose for Scottish dancing one needs people as it can't be done on a one to one basis...can it? see you next Tuesday.
Discover the reels, jigs and strathspeys of Scottish Country Dancing (SCD), and find out why British psychologists have claimed that Scottish Country Dancing is better than sex!*
You don't have to be Scottish to enjoy doing the dances from Scotland. SCD is practiced on every continent (including Antarctica) and is a popular past time for people of many ages and backgrounds.
Join to stay fit, or to become a part of the global SCD scene which offers world-wide classes and events including schools, formal balls, social gatherings, cruises and travel tours.
You don't need a partner, nor any experience. Our workshops, classes and dances are all open to beginners - so come as you are, with a pair of flat, comfortable shoes. You will join with qualified teachers and more advanced dancers to learn the footwork and formations.
