All the details of the AGM can be found in the attached minutes. CD ummer chool 07 Helen ose his year because of the classes being offered Keith and I decided to attend ummer chool for two weeks, weeks three and four. he two weeks offered different classes, teachers, musicians and bands so complemented each other rather than repeating the week. he first week I was taught by rish Nicholls from ydney, I learnt a lot and was worked hard, I was spoiled as the class musicans were Muriel Johnstone then Marion Anderson. he second week I had Eric Finlay and obert McOwen (from Boston) as teachers and odger McAndrew and oddy Johnston as musicians. All the teachers had different teaching styles and approaches to the class which meant that nothing was repeated. I practised some historical poussettes as a comparison to the way they are done now and was taught a dance that I have been wanting to do for a number of years. I have also danced all of the Book dances. here was dancing to a different musician each evening featuring a range of instruments. I have been aware that some dances use a piano and recorder duo, it was good to hear and dance to this combination. wice during each week there is dancing in the Younger Hall to Bands, his time we heard David Oswald, Marion Anderson and andy Nixon. In week three there was a musicians course running so on aturday evening we danced to a large orchestra (about ), which was a lovely experience.
2 here is also the opportunity (we didn t go) to attend a weekly dance organised by the t.andrews Branch CD which would allow you to dance to another two bands. his was David Oswald and Jim Lindsay the weeks we were there. here is usually the opportunity for extra dancing (to anything up to nine musicians) and socialising after the official evening dancing has finished. his year I really enjoyed myself, ummer chool is very sociable, I worked hard and learnt a lot.
