RSCDS Calgary Branch Virtual Ceilidh
November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MDT
The Calgary Branch of RSCDS is, as promised, pleased to be hosting a Welcome Back Ceilidh for you this Saturday, November 6th. You may sign in for this zoom event as early as 7 pm on Saturday night and our entertainment will start at 7:30 pm. We know you will enjoy what we have lined up. We want this evening to be as social as possible and so we will also be asking you to bring along a few “what my grandmother used to say” kind of sayings to share.
And what would a Scottish Country Dance Ceilidh be without a little dancing? Indeed! Dancing is required. DON BARTLETT has specially recorded and produced music with his band for us to dance to. This portion of the evening will start somewhere between 8 pm and 8:15 pm. Sharon Barker will present the dance with Don Bartlett’s notes about the tunes he has chosen and give us a little walk through so that our ghosts can be well refreshed as to their roles. However, for you my fair dancer, crib notes for the dances are also attached.
The dances will be:
It’s Nae Bother, a 4 x 32 jig
The Birks of Invermay, a 4 x 32 strathspey
Montgomeries’ Rant, a 4 x 32 reel
The Zoom link will be provided via email to all our members and other groups in Alberta.
