CORONA VIRUS SITUATION
I just wanted to have a few words with Club members and the followers of our website in this harrowing time. I am sure like me you are missing the dancing, but hopefully you are all trying to keep fit in other ways. Sadly, we have to inform you that the Carnoustie Summer Dances have been cancelled, but I expect none of you will be surprised. What will happen in the future? - alas none of us know, so please keep checking the website for any updates. In the meantime, keep well, keep safe and hopefully we can all be back dancing as soon as it is safe for us all to do so.
Sheila Simpson, Chairperson
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.
