“DANCE SCOTTISH” IN SCHOOLS
RSCDS HQ has produced a pack to introduce children to their cultural heritage and give them social and physical skills for life by teaching SCD in the classroom as part of the 5-14 curriculum. The new pack contains:
- A book of 18 popular social dances graded from elementary to advanced, plus teaching advice and a glossary of steps & formations.
- An audio CD containing music recorded by popular SD bands for teaching and for all the dances.
- A video illustrating teaching methods and a selection of the dances performed by school pupils.
- Teachers with no experience of teaching Scottish dance will find this material gives them all the resources and confidence required to enjoy learning along with their pupils.
The pack is available from RSCDS HQ (12 Coates Crescent, Edinburgh EH3 7AF, Scotland, UK) for £35 plus p&p. The Branch has its own copy of this pack which is available in loan to anyone who is interested in teaching Scottish dancing to children.
