The Tarporley-based Cheshire Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society attended the White Rose Festival near Leeds.
This festival is a prestigious Scottish Dance Festival in its 63rd year and comprises a rigorous programme of Country and Highland dancing. There are massed dances for both adults and children and four ‘demonstration’ dances which are particularly complex.
The team from Tarporley had been practicing for two and half hours each week for the five weeks preceding the festival under the keen eye of our Teachers Paula Wright and David Horsman. All the hard work paid off and the team acquitted themselves with great finesse and elegance.
The group is now looking forward to taking a team to next year’s festival.
The Society danced at the recent Bunbury Village Day and had a stand at the Tarporley Carnival.
If you are interested in Scottish dancing which is a sociable and enjoyable way of keeping fit and healthy, then please visit on Wednesday evenings at the Tarporley Community Centre. The Basic Steps and Techniques session starts at 7pm, no previous experience is required. Just come along with a pair of flat soft soled shoes.
