Our demonstration team took part in this weekend of dance at Cecil Sharpe House, Camden, London on Sunday 27 October 2019. Dance groups from around London gathered to demonstrate and introduce others to their particular form of dance. The gallery below shows a selection of the groups, from Balaton Hungarian Dance group, Muraldo African and Caribbean dance group and A Caramiña Galician Dance Group to historical dance provided by Mrs Bennet’s Ballroom class.
The Scottish dance team gave a display of 4 sets of country dances with music from Peter Jenkins on accordion interspersed with highland dances from Amanda Esslemont to the bagpipes of Neil Esslemont.
The audience of spectators and dancers from other groups appreciated the display provided by the RSCDS London Branch team.
This was followed in the afternoon by a workshop led by Simon Wales to music from Peter Jenkins where people could have a go at easy Scottish country and ceilidh dances.
This annual event is worth a visit and highlights the wealth of diversity in dance within the London area.
