This is our weekly general class, catering to dancers of all ages and abilities. The hall opens at 7pm (so people can get changed) and we usually start at 7.15pm with a warmup and a technique class until approximately 8.30pm. This is intended to cover various aspects of SCD technique such as footwork, formations, phrasing, and covering and serves to bring newcomers up to speed and keep experienced dancers on their toes. After a short interval we continue from approximately 8.40pm with more »social« dancing, which gets everyone dancing together and normally includes both dances that apply points from the technique class as well as dances from upcoming social programmes in the area. Explanations are restricted to a minimum, and we usually reserve one or two of the dances to experienced dancers. The class finishes at around 9.45pm with a brief cool-down and time to change back into street clothes, and various members adjourn to a nearby Italian restaurant for drinks or a meal.
We charge a quarterly class fee of €25 from regular attendees. For club members, participation is covered by the annual dues. Guests and newcomers are very welcome and don't have to pay anything.
