of each month, Marge is starting an intriguing new class -- "Style and technique of Country
Dance, 101" -- on 2nd Tuesdays at the Columbia Dance Center. See details below, and in
the Class listings.
Also of Note:
There will be a new class this Fall, on the 2nd Tuesday every month:
"DANCE SCOTTISH -- style and technique of Country Dance 101" for dancers wishing to improve their own technique and willing to *practice during class time*. Personalized instruction. Must have completed a basic SCD class.
The UNIQUE DANCES class will continue the 4th Tuesday every month. This class is also for dancers having completed a basic SCD class.

Reminder: the door is kept locked. Someone will let you in between 7:15 and 7:25 pm.
SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCE CLASSES Basic, Family, and Intermediate. Unbelievably affordable! - it's Scottish, after all. And no partner or special clothing are needed. Learn common formations, teamwork, and technique to evocative Celtic melodies. Full of opportunities for fun and friendship! See various locations, days, and registration information in the Class listings.
OUR CLASS IN ACTION! Perhaps you've wondered what Scottish Country Dancing looks like? Well, now you can view a short video of our class dancing "Knit the Pocky".(A "pocky" is a fingerless glove, worn to keep the hands warm while freeing the fingers for detailed tasks.)
