Final Scottish Dance Class of March is Saturday
There will be a Scottish dance class Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Athens Public Library, located at 30 Home Street.
The focus of this class will be on helping returning students become more comfortable with performing Scottish country dancing. If enough participants partake in this class, then they’ll be able to learn a new move called the, “reel of three.”
This will be the last class in March. The next scheduled class will be on April 15 from 10 a.m. until noon at the Athens Public Library. In April, these classes will revert back to learning the basics of Scottish dancing. Anyone interested in attending should RSVP instructor, Anna Hess, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
