Scottish Country Dance Classes
Scottish Country Dance Classes focused on Basic and Social dancing and Technique will be led by each of the three guest dance teachers. On Saturday afternoon dancers may select one of the specialty classes offered. Classes will be accompanied by our staff musicians. All Scottish Country dance classes will cover technique and dancing as a social activity, but will emphasize different aspects. Basic - For less experienced dancers or others who want to work on basic points of the steps and formations. Social - Social aspects of Scottish Country dancing (no footwork). Technique – More advanced execution of steps and more challenging formations. The classes you requested are indicated on your packet. If you want to change, see Ellen Ternes.
Music classes will offer instruction in playing Scottish tunes, focusing on music for Scottish Country dancing.
Specialty classes will be offered Saturday afternoon. In 2017, they are: 1. Terry Harvey - Singing class. Join Terry to learn and sing a round or two! Music reading helpful but not necessary. Sense of humor essential. 2. Robert McOwen will offer a Waltz Class for all of us who have two left feet when it comes to Scottish waltzing! 3. David Queen, Personal Technique & Critique - Individual feedback and ideas on how to improve your technique.
See the schedule page for more information.
