It’s all about the dance
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.
