It’s all about the dance

South Waikato News - - Your Health -

Toko­roa’s Scot­tish Dance Club will hold an af­ter­noon of dance in hon­our of Dance Scot­tish month.

They will run two con­cur­rent classes on June 18 – one to cater for begin­ners and one to cater for more ex­pe­ri­enced dancers.

Ex­pe­ri­enced Scot­tish Coun­try Dance teach­ers from the wider Waikato re­gion have been en­listed to tu­tor each class.

One of th­ese, Ruth Bud­den, will then em­cee the so­cial danc­ing for all that will fol­low the classes.

The club hope that new dancers who come to the classes will see the fun that can be had at a so­cial/ ceilidh, Jeanette Lauder said.

She said Scot­tish Coun­try Danc­ing is so­cial danc­ing, not com­pet­i­tive, and can be en­joyed by the whole fam­ily.

But that did not mean peo­ple couldn’t come on their own to ei­ther par­tic­i­pate or just watch from the side­lines.

For those want­ing to have a go, soft soled shoes are a must.

The dance af­ter­noon will be held at the Am­is­field School Hall.

The be­gin­ner’s class will be held from 1pm to 3.30 $10 adults, $5 stu­dents. Fol­lowed by so­cial/ Ceilidh danc­ing from 4.30pm to 7pm $8 adults, $4 stu­dents & spec­ta­tors. Phone 07 886 6590 for more de­tails.
