A new Social Dancing Brief Only in-person Scottish dance class will begin Tuesday, September 7, 2:00pm at the Vancouver Officers Row Gazebo, 1125 E Evergreen Blvd. The class will be led by Tom. Admission will be free while the class meets outdoors. We suggest you wear sturdier shoes than ghillies and bring your own water. The nearby Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Visitor Center has restrooms.
Because we are all a little out of practice from dancing, we are starting out with a shorter program than we used for our online class. And because the class will meet weekly instead of monthly, we will use each program for two classes in a row to give us all a chance to relax and dance something familiar every other week, while having the opportunity to improve our personal performance.
The Vancouver Officers Row Gazebo has good ventilation with steady fresh airflow and a flexible floor. The class will likely be held outdoors during September and October with pleasant afternoon weather, then transition to online, and eventually return to in-person when conditions are favorable for an indoor Scottish dance class. It will operate under the SWWS Branch COVID-19 safety policy that is in effect at the current time of the class.
