The 2018 Toronto Workshop: Epilogue

Workshop Convenor, Christy Barber, writes:

Thanks to the many dancers who attended Toronto’s annual Workshop and Afternoon Dance in November.

This opportunity to bring together a variety of fine and fun teachers and musicians feeds our passion for Scottish country dancing. After the Workshop, we received so many positive comments, including: “such a friendly event” and “always a pleasure.” We worked hard to ensure a satisfying day for everyone.

This year’s guest teachers, Andrew Smith from Kansas; Sara Posen from St Catharines, and David Booz from Toronto, brought enthusiasm for the dancing, and dances to challenge our skills. Both newer and experienced dancers found something to “take away” from the variety of approaches offered.

Each class was enhanced by the musical skills of Laird Brown and Don Wood, Don Bartlett and Fred Moyes.

Scotch Mist filled the spacious bright gym with great tunes for the Afternoon Dance, with a welcoming program devised by Deirdre MacCuish Bark.

The Intro Class led by Moira Korus was an initiative which captured the interest of a number of people who expressed intentions to enrol in classes in January.

The popular sale of gently used donated items, renamed Dancewear Bazaar, was a shoppers’ paradise, and the proceeds will support RSCDS Toronto activities. 

The generosity of Toronto members who provide overnight hospitality and transportation support was appreciated by out-of-towners.

It takes a team to coordinate the details of this major event.  I was pleased to work with these interested and interesting Workshop Committee members:
Jane Robinson, Anne and Kevin Moloney,  Susan and Andy Lipchak, Bill Barber, Pat Brown, Louise and Phil Buddle, and Anne Bishop.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to contribute to the Workshop Committee for the last 7 years. My wish is to engage with someone who would like to be mentored with myself and our Committee for the 2019 Workshop, and then assume the role of Convenor the following year.
