Scottish Country Dance Classes ~ Concord!!

The Scottish Country Dance group will be meeting at Gilwood Presbyterian Church (2993 Odell School Rd, Concord, NC) on Thursdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m.  The classes are for ages 8 and up. Occasionally, classes are divided by age for height reasons.  Class dues are $70 per new dancer for the year ($60 for returning dancers) with the first two classes free.  Checks can be made out to CSCDS.  Classes will run from September 7 through June 7, with no class during Holy Week (Thursday, March 29).  There is an advanced class that meets on the same day from 2-3:30 p.m.  This class is based on skill level and is by invitation.

The dress code is as follows:
Gentlemen – Pants or shorts, no jeans or camo.  Shirts with sleeves.  Socks with gel grip or soft soled shoes such as ghillies or ballet shoes (black is the most common color).
Ladies – Shirts with sleeves, skirts to mid-calf, socks with gel grip or soft soled shoes such as ghillies or ballet shoes (black is the most common color).

**It is strongly recommended to purchase dance shoes that are large enough to fit an insole, as we will be dancing on 100% concrete.  Last year we found reasonably found priced insoles at Payless ShoeSource.**

Classes may be canceled on short notice due to the church needing the space for a funeral.  We will do our best to contact you as soon as possible if this occurs.

If you would like more information on our Scottish Country Dance group, check out our website or Facebook page. For those considering classes, you may join our members in our Facebook group!

We are looking forward to seeing you on the first day of class; please bring a friend!

Best Regards,
Daniel (Scottish Dance coordinator)
