Look­ing lively at Lawrence


The Two-step, Dash­ing White Sergeant, Strip the Wil­low, Vir­ginia Reel, The Kingston Flyer ...

It was lessons in the Scot­tish coun­try dance - not the train - that Waitahuna School pupils were tak­ing last week in prepa­ra­tion for the Lawrence Scot­tish Coun­try Dance Group’s ceilidh to be held on Satur­day night at Lawrence.

The en­tire school has been prac­tis­ing The Kingston Flyer to demon­strate at the Scot­tish gath­er­ing, dance group teacher Quentin Cur­rall said.

He was thrilled with the en­thu­si­asm and en­ergy shown by the chil­dren. ‘‘Their par­ents and grand­par­ents are telling me how much the chil­dren are en­joy­ing it.’’

The band Glen­fid­dle from Auck­land will play for the Scot­tish-themed even­ing.

‘‘We wanted to make the most of the even­ing and have some­thing that every­one in the com­mu­nity would have fun at, even if they have never danced be­fore and have two left feet.’’ he said.

The event is suit­able for young and old. It starts at 7pm at the Simp­son Park Sports Cen­tre. Adults $5, school age chil­dren with a par­ent, free.
