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 two dances. Enjoy, if only in your imagination.

We are not yet able to dance in person but the clickable events listed above will lift your spirits


Shiftin’ Bobbins’ traditional St. Andrew’s Dance to live music remains on the calendar — subject to prevailing regulations. To ease us back into dancing, a “nice ‘n easy” program is planned of well-known dances, walked through.

This event is usually sold out well ahead of time, and could be subject to number limits, places maybe reserved on the standby list now open by emailing shiftinbobbins@gmail.com

Standby assists in early planning but is not an obligation in the event of cancellation due to unforeseen health and safety rules.  Should the dance be permitted to proceed, tickets will become available for sale with priority given to the standby list.
