As you are aware, the club was due to have its Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 25 March 2020. As the corona virus shutdown forced us to cancel that meeting, the committee has considered how to proceed. We are proposing that we have a “virtual” AGM. You have previously been sent all the papers.
In the document in the link below and which you should have received by email or post we work through the agenda and its proposed actions (in bold). This will enable the new committee to prepare for the recommencement of dancing, whenever that may be.
We hope you are all managing to cope during these difficult times, keeping safe and in good spirits.
All classes are currently cancelled.
The AGM is on hold – but see separate post.
The Ceilidh is cancelled.
We were planning to have the Summer Barbeque on Saturday 27 June. We will decide whether to hold this event depending on circumstances nearer the time.
In the meantime try looking for Tunes in the Hoose on Facebook for some super music. By dint of modern technology you can see some brilliant musicians playing together while miles apart.
You can also look at the dancing at home page on the London Branch website: https://www.rscdslondon.org.uk/scottish-dancing-at-home/
Steve is giving advance notice of his planned programmes for Wednesdays. See the Wednesday class page for links to his programme and the spreadsheet that shows which dances have been done: http://scottishdancingreading.org/index.php/classes/intermediategeneral/
Our ball was on Saturday 1 February. Here is a link to a report and some pictures: http://scottishdancingreading.org/index.php/events-2/past-events/the-ball-1-february-2020/
This year, rather than publishing a book of new dances, the RSCDS has published a book called 30 Popular Dances and accompanying CDs. This new book includes a mixture of traditional and non-traditional dances, all selected by branches for popularity in their area.
The book and CDs were launched at the RSCDS Annual Gathering (AGM) in November. Prices have been announced and the book is £12. There are two CDs – a new recording by James Coutts Scottish Dance Band at £14.30 and a second CD from archive recordings of various bands at £10.
