Are you young or young at heart? Love to have fun, do something active, meet new people?
Scottish country dancing is a real laugh, a fun new thing to learn. It’s very easy to pick up and no experience is necessary. This social folk dance is ideal for kids, young families, old-timers descended from Highland Scotland, even cariocas used to samba. After a couple of sessions, the less coordinated will be reeling and jigging away. There’s music and a very light-hearted spirit about it all. A good workout too.
- Lessons are held every Tuesday at 8pm (until October!) at the Paissandu Club in Leblon.
- Participants will become experts on the Gay Gordons and many other funny-sounding dances.
- Then, on the 6th October there will be an end-of-season Caledonian Ceilidh (pronounced Kaylee), a lively Scottish event in the Jubilee Hall with lots of folk dancing, music, food, drink and fun.
- Lessons are free and the set-up is very informal.
- Come in comfortable (maybe sporty) clothing. Kilt if you have one.
- The Paissandu, which is usually quiet on a Tuesday evening, has a bar and restaurant which many participants use.
- Audrey Hiett is the organizer, so please mention her name and Scottish dancing when turning up at the club. Audrey can be contacted on (21) 2274-0752 or email@example.com to add your name to the list and for further information.
