The Club . . . .

The Carnoustie SCD Club is a non-affiliated group of Scottish Country Dancers, who meet on Thursday evenings most weeks from September through to May. It is located in the town of Carnoustie in the County of Angus, Scotland, the home of the world famous Champion Golf Course.

The Club hosts a number of open dances in larger venues in the town, of particular note are a series of five Summer Dances held in the Beach Hall in the Carnoustie Leisure Centre. These are enthusiastically attended by country dancers from the surrounding area and by visitors from abroad, and usually including some from the RSCDS Summmer School at St Andrews.

Dance of the Month. . . . To be advised

During most months of the Club session the teacher chooses a dance to be learned over 4 or 5 successive weeks, giving members a chance to get know it.

To find out about the dance, follow this link to the Scottish Dancing Dictionary website which gives dance cribs, diagrams & videos (if available) for most current Scottish Country Dances.

To use the website, click on the link to open the website home page. Select the appropriate category in the index, then look for the dance in the alphabetic listing.

If you don't like using Cribs or Diagrams, then why not have a look at a video (if available).

News from Australia from Ron & Glenda

It's about five weeks since Ron's operation, which went well, apart from some complications. He says he is just starting to think about dancing again, although it is going to take three months to get fully fit. They both have really missed the summer dancing and are working up to do some socials by this October at home.

Ron asked us to pass on his news as he has been thinking about the good dancing they have missed during his time in hospital and recovery.

Ron sends his regards all.
