Autumn 23 classes
Things are going well with our autumn classes for our new dancers in the Skye class and our Iona class dancers are learning more complex formations ready for social dancing later in the evening.
RSCDS Teachers - Well done!
We are so proud of Caroline and Jan for passing their final teaching certificate exams - not that there was any doubt!
We look forward to you continuing to teach us all with your patience and enthusiasm.
Our Charity for the coming year
Our charity for the year will again be the Chiltern Food Bank. The date for this term's collection is November 23.
Lucy Clark at RSCDS AGM
Liz did a great presentation as a guest speaker at the RSCDS AGM in Glasgow in November. The panel discussion was on dancing initiatives with a focus on recruitment. Liz gave a talk on how we have fun at Lucy Clark. There was a full house, extra chairs were brought in and standing room only.
Lucy Clark SCDC is affiliated to the RSCDS. We are delighted to be a part of this worldwide organisation and to celebrate its centenary year.
Standing room only at the RSCDS Sunday morning panel talk on dancing initiatives in Glasgow.
It’s a friendly, well managed club with excellent teachers where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities are provided with a positive, inclusive and welcoming environment to experience the joy of Scottish Country Dancing.
Smiles all round in greeting
Convivial company meeting
Decidedly stress beating
Scottish Country Dancing!
