“I was first introduced to Scottish Country Dancing in 2012 with the Affiliated Group of Grenoble (France) after an internship in Edinburgh and I instantly fell in love with it!
Then I met people from Lyon and was able to challenge myself and improve my dancing.
Being a member of Lyon Branch allowed me to attend the Newcastle Festival and achieve the first half of my Teaching Certificate!
I love being part of this big family, be able to dance anywhere in the world and share my passion with so many people."
- Kevin Piquemal (Lyon Branch)
