A day late but I hope you won’t mind.
Firstly we have a bouquet of flowers for all the mothers out there – three dances with flowers in the name.
That is followed by a set dance I devised for my mother, Caroline Inglis, a strathspey named ‘Caroline’s Fancy’ danced by the demonstration team.
Then a few definitions from a mother’s vocabulary.
Lastly, staying on the theme of flowers, we have two posters created by Mary Bridson for the beginners afternoon tea dance in May 2018.
