Dear Dancing Friends,

The next event will be a Day School on the Saturday 1st June.

Full details are on our events page together with the download links for the Application Form and Flyer.

The Anglo Scottish Society of Ipswich, Bury Reel Club and Beccles Caledonian Society are combining forces to run a Day School with Tom and Lindsey Ibbotson on Saturday 1st June.  This will be held at Copdock & Washbrook Village Hall from 10am to 5:30pm.  There will be classes for advanced and intermediate dancers, as well as some social dancing. Please book the classes you wish to attend, and come along and join us for a fun and instructive day.

Then we have a Summer Dance to live music from Keith Smith and Anne-Laure Latour on Saturday 15th June at Copdock & Washbrook Village Hall, details available very soon.   So keep looking here for news of these events.

We also try and collect events being organised by other societies in the region in our What's On listings. If you have upcoming dances or similar events that you would like us to include, please do let us know. 

Videos of dances

Many people now use the YouTube videos to help with learning new dances, or just refreshing their memory on old ones, and these can be found via links on the Scottish Country Dance Dictionary cribs pages. However, not all dances have videos, and that applies particularly to locally devised dances such as The Saxtead Mill, Gillian's Strathspey and Jim and Margaret's Jig.  So the Woodbridge class has been busy filling a few gaps.
