Xmas Night Out

Special footwork class on Thursday 18th December, to be held at The Atholl Arms from 7pm.  

In order that this footwork be kept secret, we will have to sit down and practise under tables, with occasional trips to the bar (just to stretch our legs).  Participants are reminded that during such intense training it is important to keep up your fluids.

All past and present members, and occasional visitors welcome.
