Cheltenham Scottish Society
We organise two major social events each year, and we take great care to devise programmes of well known and familiar dances. We want to ensure that every dance is known by everyone. There are no challenges, no brain strain, no walk-throughs, just a river of enjoyment. The ticket we sell looks like paper, but that is an illusion. We are really selling atmosphere. Enjoyment is what it is all about. No one here writes dances to add to the already overstocked pool.
Our Annual Dance in February is the largest in the Midlands or West Country, getting 12 sets in normal times. Our Summer Dance in June is a smaller event with 7 sets.
We feel it is important for dancers to support each other’s events, and we often have a large group travelling to support other clubs’ dances. With the aim of encouraging others to do the same we publish and distribute a Dance Diary of all events in this area, which is also available on www.jockjigging.webador.co.uk
