|What is It?:||
"Fàilte" means welcome in Gaelic, and all Scottish dancers,
beginners and experienced, are most welcome*! The Fàilte Dance
is intended to be a gentle introduction to the ball scene for
newer dancers, and a fun night for all. Enjoy a scrumptious
dessert buffet, live music, and dancing in a semi-formal setting. All dances will have been taught at Monday night classes in October and November.
Never been to a ball before and not sure what to expect? Check out our
guide for the neophyte ball-goer and then
grab your ghillies and join us on the dance floor. |
*PLEASE NOTE: Although we consider this event to be "beginner-friendly," we do strongly recommend that dancers have some previous exposure to Scottish country dancing (a few classes at least) and familiarity with the terminology. Please contact us at info [at] rscds-twincities.org if you have any questions about your ability to participate.
