Daytime Groups

These sessions provide dancers with the opportunity for dancing in the afternoon with people from other clubs as well as their own. It is for those who would enjoy learning new dances and harder formations that they may not encounter at club. In 2018 we trialled a daytime group for experienced dancers, and from March 2019 Catherine has offered to run ‘general’ sessions as well.

St Johns is on the hill six minutes’ walk from the Johnsonville train station and bus hub.

Please bring your own water bottle or mug.

It would be good if you let Gaylia or Catherine know if you’re interested, so that we can assess the demand. Otherwise, just come!

Experienced Dancers 2019

When: Twice a month, second and fourth Tuesday afternoons, restarting 26 February
Time: 12:45 until 2:45pm
Where: St Johns Anglican Church, 18 Basset Road, Johnsonville
Cost: $6 per session or $20 until Easter (four sessions)

These sessions will provide independent dancers with the opportunity to learn new dances and harder formations that they may not encounter at club. Dances will be walked if required. Catherine McCutcheon will lead the sessions until Easter 2019.

General Sessions 2019 – NEW

When: Once a month, third Tuesday afternoons, starting 19 March
Time: 12:45 until 2:45pm
Where: St Johns Anglican Church, 18 Basset Road, Johnsonville
Cost: The door fee will probably be $6 to cover the cost.

The focus will be on popular dances, including some from upcoming dance programmes. Although the dances will be walked and taught, they will best suit those of intermediate level and above who know the common formations, including reels of three, reels of four, allemande, double triangles, reel/jig poussette, grand chain, figure of 8 across and on sides, and ladies’ chain, and can instantly identify corner positions.
