The Committee would like to welcome… trrr(snare drums)…
Irina Wernet as Freshers’ Rep
as new members to the New Scotland committee!
It’s also nice to have Daniel Franzen continuing his great work in the committee
Freshers! (i.e. all members to have joined the society this year) note that Irina is YOUR very own representative, so if you have any suggestions, ideas, complaints etc. from a fresher’s point of view, don’t hesitate to contact her or pull her sleeve some time to let her know how you feel.
They will be added to the committee page soon, so you can know better who your committee members are!
p.s. Don’t forget to send any photos, anecdotes, stories or drawings about this year with New Scotland to our president Alastair (email@example.com) for the yearbook!
Our dancers are back from Newcastle dance festival and brought with them a trophy: Together with our sister group Dunedin Dancers they won the display with their army style dance. Congratulations, you did a fantastic job!! For everyone interested: Here is the video.
Welcome to a new term full of dancing and other social activities! Our classes will run again from next week, please do note the venue changes though! Only the classes at Lutton Place stay where they are, all other classes will be held in a different venue this term!
For step classes on Monday we have the Summerhall (Vet School), for Tuesdays St Columbas by the Castle and for Highland the Potterrow Dome.
On Wednesday, 19. January there will be a taster class at the Pleasance from 6pm – 8pm, where you can have a first try at all the different dancing styles we are teaching – and the best thing is: it is absolutely free! So if you have never danced step, highland or ceilidh and want to have a go at it, or have some friends who are curious about this, do come along!
Please do also remember that there will be lots of other events this term, like Refreshers’ Weekend, Annual Dance and IVFDF in Bristol!
