VanIsle Workshop & Ball
Plans are coming together for a workshop and ball on 1st April 2023. We will post updates as they become available.
We are pleased to welcome Linda Henderson as this year’s guest teacher.
Originally from North Berwick, near Edinburgh, Linda now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, but travels home to Scotland whenever she can. Linda began Country Dancing at Primary School and is a former competitive Highland dancer. She grew up in a musical household. Her father plays accordion and she played piano in a SCD Band; her musical background has a big influence in her teaching.
Linda has taught all levels of adult and youth classes in the San Francisco Branch, and workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Linda is an experienced ceilidh caller and can often be found leading the dances at weddings and parties!
It gives her great pleasure as a teacher and dancer to share the traditions of Scotland through its music and dancing.
Hope to see you there: Committee Members Kathryn Knowles (Chair), Barb Currie, Gael Forster, June Robinson, Anita Mathur, Lori Morrison
