CORE DANCES

Home Page | More about the Society Meetings |Events | | Photos | Contacts

The Sociey aims to have a number of "core dances" which members learn sufficiently well to dance without any walk-throughs. Members are invited to familiarise themselves with the core dance for each club night and those who feel confident to dance it will have the opportunity of doing so without any calling. There is no obligation to participate; it is merely an opportunity for those who would like to do so to acquire a repertoire of dances that become very well-known to them.
