"Little Extra" Dancer Sessions

(none scheduled)

In addition to our Monday nights – where John works so hard- we suggest one afternoon a month for just “a little extra”. A little extra fun, a little extra improvement (maybe), a little extra knowledge about the dances and history and etiquette of Scottish Country Dance. Some laughs and some learning.

Here’s the plan:  It would be nice to know ahead of time but Come if you can
If four people arrive we do two couple dances and formations
If six people come we do three couple dances, eight people – free choice
If ten or 12 people come- hallelujah – we can do 5 couple dances and 12some reel
The dances will be the fun tricky ones (that some people mistakenly think are “hard”, nah) and you are welcome to have requests; we can be very spontaneous, no need for a hard and fast plan. We will have a plan for each session in some form but very flexible.

Advanced Dancer Sessions

(none scheduled)

These sessions are designed just for dancing!  Bring your energy, your good shoes and dances you want to dance.  Also, we sometimes work out a challenging dance...

T.A.C. definition of an advanced dancer:  Solid understanding of all steps and formations and high level of personal performance in all aspects of the dance.

A local definition of an advanced dancer:  Knows the basic figures of Scottish Country Dance, can quickly learn new figures, recover from mistakes without missing a beat and can get partners through dances with Napier difficulty levels of 1 - 3.

If in doubt, please ask your instructor.
