Learn Scot­tish dances

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Join­ing a Scot­tish coun­try danc­ing club opens up a world of fit­ness, friend­ship and fun, says a lo­cal troupe.

In 1923 two women, Jean Mil­li­gan and Yso­bel Ste­wart were dis­mayed at how the dances in Scot­land were be­ing per­formed so they started to col­lect and pre­serve the dances in their orig­i­nal form.

This year is the 90th an­niver­sary of the Royal Scot­tish Coun­try Dance So­ci­ety and there are cel­e­bra­tions world­wide.

In Welling­ton, a week­end school is hold­ing a ball at the end of June.

Beginner classes are avail­able in most clubs, the lo­cal ones be­ing Tawa and Lin­den.

Tawa meets on Thurs­days and beginner classes are from Fe­bru­ary 7, 7.30pm till 9.30pm, and Lin­den on Mon­days from 7pm till 8.30pm, be­gin­ning March 7.

Call Mau­reen on 478 8055 for Tawa, meet­ing in Tawa Union Church, Red­wood Ave and Philippa on 496 2102 for the Lin­den group, who meet in Tawa Bap­tist Church Hall, Main Rd, Tawa. No part­ner is re­quired just wear ca­sual clothes and soft shoes.
