Sorry but the Ball is off

Our annual ball was scheduled for Saturday 6 February 2021 at the Abbey School. Due to the renewed restrictions due to the covid-19 pandemic we have had to cancel. If you would like to see what you are missing here is a crib

and if you follow this link https://my.strathspey.org/dd/list/28220/ you will get a listing with links to cribs and videos of the dances. 

We are scheduled to have a ceilidh on 27 March. We have not cancelled that yet but suspect that it is unlikely that we will be able to hold it.

On-line dancing and music

There are a variety of ways to keep in touch with dancing on-line.

https://www.rscds.org/get-involved/dance-scottish-home gives you access to a weekly podcast with music and chat about dances. If you click on a week you will get access to that week’s email Newsletter which has a link to that week’s podcast. At the foot of the page you can access all the weekly online dance classes that the RSCDS has been putting on. You do not have to be a RSCDS member to access these resources.

If you are on Facebook you can look for “Tunes in the Hoose”  – musicians located in different places, and even in different countries, magically playing together. The original concept was thought up by Martin MacLeod Snr, a founding member of Capercaillie, inspired by Shetland accordionist Peter Wood, who was posting daily ‘tunes in his hoose’ whilst in isolation. The initial collaboration between Martin and Peter was stitched together by Martin MacLeod Jr, a filmmaker based in Glasgow, marking the start of the internationally-acclaimed community known as “Tunes in the Hoose.”
