*Morning Classes: Two class options will be offered during each class session:

Scottish Dances in the Ballroom--Appropriate for dancers who have been dancing at least 6 months who are familiar with basic footwork, figures, and geography, and who are interested in learning new dances. This low-pressure and relaxed class will help dancers improve their abilities to dance from a briefing, focus on dance etiquette and practice recovery skills.

Challenge Dancing and Technique--Suitable for dancers with more than 1 1/2 years' experience who are familiar with standard steps/formations, are able to dance from a talk-through and are interested in improving technique. Dances may require a combination of high-energy movement and intense mental focus.

Sunday Specialty class is low-impact English and Ceilidh dances with Terry and Elaine. No experience necessary.

Teachers Round Table discussion: all dance teachers and teacher candidates are welcome to bounce questions and ideas about teaching off Elaine as well as the whole group. This is a great way to identify your own teaching habits, and make adjustments and improvements! This will meet at the Briscoe home, 1709 Stonebridge Road, Alexandria.
