NEW BEGINNERS COURSE 13 FEBRUARY 2016

Scottish Country Dance Classes
at the Malak Community Centre
Our next 12 week BEGINNERS COURSE for adults and teenagers is coming up!

Courses are run at the Malak Community Centre on Malak Crescent.

STAY YOUNG, FIT and SOCIABLE — TAKE UP S.C.D.

Protect your HEART — excellent aerobic activity.

Delay or prevent OSTEOPOROSIS — regular weightbearing activity for the bones.

Keep ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE at bay — the brain is kept constantly challenged.

Prolong a HAPPY LIFE — regular social interaction with good company.

THE COURSE
The  Scottish  Country  Dance Society  Inc  will  be  commencing  Darwin's  next  Beginners  Course  at  the MALAK COMMUNITY CENTRE in Malak Crescent on Saturday 13 February  2016
for 12 weekly sessions each Saturday from 2:00 to 4:00 pm

These courses assume NO prior knowledge, experience or ability whatsoever (ancestry is immaterial!), and are structured so that participants completing the course are then able to continue dancing with skill and pleasure at the Society's weekly sessions in the Malak Centre on Saturday afternoons, 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
They are also able to join in with the thousands of other groups world-wide when travelling interstate or overseas.

You can enrol by yourself, with a friend, as a couple or in a group; there is no requirement to bring a partner to join.

WHAT YOU GET
  • 12 intensive lessons, starting completely from scratch, covering ALL the basics and more with internationally qualified teachers.
  • Graded exercise to develop fitness and skills as required.
  • Printed details of instructions for all techniques and dances covered.
  • Specific instruction and practice in a graded set of 21 dances.
  • Good fun, good company and good exercise. 

WHAT IS NEEDED FROM YOU
Regular attendance, punctuality and effort.   The course is sequential and quite intensive; partial attendance is not likely to lead to either success or maintained interest.   Obviously if you lose interest you are free to drop out, but we don't think you will.

WHAT TO BRING
Lightweight very casual clothing, e.g T-shirt and shorts.

To start, very light supple shoes or dancing pumps (no high heels).   Heavy or clumsy footwear is not suitable.   Correct Scottish Country Dance shoes can be purchased in Darwin (from Dance World, Darwin, 6 Charlton Place, Woolner; phone 8981 9398) as soon as you decide to continue.

COSTS
It is necessary to charge participants a nominal fee of $50 for the course to cover basic costs, but the maximum total fee for family enrolments is limited to $100 to encourage families to dance together, and for groups of 4 or more like-minded friends, half price!
Early applications accompanied by a $10 non-returnable registration component of the fee will guarantee a place on the course, with the balance payable by or on the commencement of the course.
