RSCDS Winnipeg Branch
One Day Workshop
April 20, 2024
Churchill Park United Church
525 Beresford Ave Winnipeg R3L 1J4

We all know that Scottish country dancing is enjoyed all over the world, and because of the standards developed by the RSCDS, can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere there is a dance group. However, when we live in a place where the nearest "other" dance group is a long way away (a good day's drive), it is easy to lose sight of the bigger world.

We see the same people, and hear the same teachers, every week. That's why workshops are important. Remember meeting friends from far and wide - Mieko, from Japan in 2019, and the Wood family from Quebec last year, for example? Not to mention, getting fresh insight from teachers we may never have met before.

Sometimes, instruction on the same step or formation, but worded differently, can cause one of those "light bulb" moments. For most of us, who can't travel long distances to other workshops or summer schools, it's those fresh faces, and new insights that make workshops worthwhile. We hope to see you on 20th April!

Davicd Booz

David began Scottish Country Dancing as a child in Toronto with Betty Thompson of Newtonbrook. After taking a few years off to get an engineering degree, he returned to SCD as a young adult and danced with the Finlay Scottish Country Dancers demo team for many years. He earned his Teacher’s Certificate in 1999.

David has taught a number of social groups and Association classes in Toronto and at workshops and dance schools across Canada. Most recently he taught Basic and DAA classes in Toronto.

David believes that dancing should above all be fun, and that you shouldn’t take it too seriously – it is, after all, only dancing. On the other hand, David believes that since SCD is a “team sport”, it is most enjoyable when it is done well, with particular attention paid to phrasing, covering, handing, and enjoying interacting with the other dancers.
