FYI… The 2020/2021 PROGRAMME,
devised by Pat Coyle

What we would have been doing but for Covid-19

We don’t know when we can resume our beloved Scottish country dancing; nor do we know when/if this programme will be used.

However, Pat has given us a fine programme, with fun dances. The cribs have video links for all but 2 dances. Enjoy, if only in your imagination.
