Advanced Sessions

When: Twice a month, second and fourth Tuesday afternoons, 12:45 until 2:45pm

A variety of local tutors. These sessions provide independent dancers with the opportunity to learn new dances and formations they may not encounter at their club.

During 2024, the advanced group will meet from February 27 with Iain Boyd as the tutor
for the first few sessions. Tutors for 2024 will also include Diane Bradshaw and Melva Waite.

General Sessions

When: Third Tuesday of each month, starting in March, and also the fifth Tuesday (when there is one), 12:45 until 2:45pm

Tutor for 2024: Catherine McCutcheon

The focus for the general group is on popular dances, including some from upcoming dance programmes. Although the dances are walked and taught, they best suit those of intermediate level and above who don’t need to constantly rely on a partner. You should know the common formations, including reels of three, reels of four, allemande, double triangles, poussette in reel time, grand chain, figures of eight across and on the sides, and ladies’ chain, and be able to identify corner positions.

The first of the general sessions for 2024 will take place on Tuesday March 19.
