Past Events in 2021/2022
Our first dance for this year, our Charity Dance for Norwich Blood Bikes, was on Saturday 23 October held at the Unthank Hall in Norwich. We had great fun dancing together again after the long break. We had three sets and some good dances. Thanks to our visitors who came to join us. The Charity will receive over £100 which includes the proceeds from the popular raffle.
On Saturday 20 November 2021 we held a very successful RSCDS Norwich Day Workshop thanks to our Instructor William Williamson and accordion player Judith Muir from Craigellachie. Everyone had a good time and learnt a lot about dancing because William was such an entertaining and informative instructor. Many thanks to all involved especially the dancers who came from the surrounding area to join us. We had a splendid lunch and were supplied with tea, coffee and biscuits.
There is a photograph on the Facebook page, see link above.
Our Christmas Dance held on 18 December 2021 at the Unthank Hall in Norwich, was a great success. Thanks to the visitors for coming to join us. We had at least 24 dancers including two beginners, well done to them. We raised over £90 for the tombola for St Martins Trust for the homeless in Norwich, there were some very generous prices.
