TAUNTON CALEDONIAN SOCIETY
We are a group of Scottish Country Dance enthusiasts, some Scottish, some not, who meet every Wednesday evening to dance. Some of us have been dancing most of our lives; others are new to it. All of us enjoy the opportunity to meet, socialise, learn new dances and dance the familiar ones. Our dances are walked through first, often more than once, to refresh our memories and give newer members a chance to learn them. We are a friendly group and, although we always try to dance our best, we have fun as well and don't take it too seriously.
In recent years we introduced the idea of "core dances" in which members who wish to do so are invited to dance a single dance per evening without a walkthrough. The aim is to provide an opportunity to learn some dances especially well. The programme of core dances and accompanying Minicrib for the period January to June 2024 are available via the links below.
Experienced dancers visiting the area are always welcome to join in. Complete beginners are welcome but, as we recognise that Scottish country dancing is not easy to begin with, we would ask those who would like to give it a try to make contact with us first so that we can arrange a suitable introduction and integration. If you are a beginner and would like to give Scottish Country Dancing a try please contact Sandra on 01823 979093.
We generally hold two dances during the year, one in the summer and one in November. Our next dance will be on Saturday 29th June 2024. Details of the programme will be published here when they are available.
