No Experience Necessary – our Dance Callers instruct all in the dances.
(unlike in Scotland where they expect you to know all the dances!)
** Limited tickets to save space for dancing.
In the workshop we will be focussing on some traditional reels:
The Eightsome Reel
The Duke of Perth
The Reel of the 51st Regiment
We will repeat these dances later in the formal dance, and will add in some other country dances:
The Cumberland Square Eight
The Dashing White Sargeant
The Gay Gordons
The Virginia Reel
Strip the Willow
and we´ll finish with the Arcadian Strip the Willow.
