Richmond Caledonian Society Programme

Term Dates and Events

We meet on Wednesdays 19:15-21:45 from September to June. Our dates for the 2023-2024 season are shown below.

We are keen to encourage less experienced dancers to join us so we are introducing a learning/practice session at the beginning of each meeting. This will teach formations and/or pracitise one or more of the dances scheduled for later in the evening. This will be followed by less challenging dances for the first part of the meeting so less experienced dancers can join with confidence.

From 24th January until the end of this term, Jim Cook will take the practice/teaching session, for half an hour, starting at 19:15. We are grateful to Jim for taking this on. He will aim to include standard formations that will come up later in the programme. This will be followed by the published programme with the for that evening.
