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.
