The Reading St Andrew’s Scottish Dancing Society was formed in September 1949 which means that it will be 70 years old this year. The first event to mark the occasion will be a reunion on the afternoon of 31 August 2019. There will be tea and cakes, reminiscing and a little gentle dancing. Invitations to former members will be sent out in due course and more information will be given nearer the time but in the meantime if you have some photographs, cuttings or memories that you would like to share please contact one of the committee.
The club will hold its annual Burns Supper on Tuesday 22 January at St Andrew’s church. It starts at the usual time but may go on a bit later. There will be haggis, tatties and neeps at half time as well as dancing of course. Please put your name on the list on the notice board so we can ensure that there is enough haggis!
Tuesday Elementary/Improvers classes will restart on 8 January and will be taken by Duncan Barnet. Cribs have been uploaded for Gaynor’s January and February classes.
Wednesday Intermediate/General classes will restarted on 2 January – Sara Ribbins took us through some ball dances as Steve Kelly was away.
Thursday Advanced classes restarted on 3 January and was taken by Anne Carter as usual.
