Come join us at this year’s workshop and ball!  Please email the workshop committee if you have questions.



There will be three levels of classes: an Experience/Advanced, an Intermediate and a Basic level.

Katherine Shearman, Vancouver BC




The Basic class will be taught by Hazel MacDonald, Nanaimo British Columbia



Intermediate and Experienced Class musicians:

MaryMary Ross, Victoria British Columbia

Julie Smith, Vancouver, British Columbia


Workshops will be in James Bay: the Basic and Intermediate classes will both be at the Edelweiss Club in two separate rooms and the Experienced class will be at the James Bay Athletic Association. Each class will have two morning sessions. Dancers will stay in the same location for both sessions.


What level are you? We made a self-assessment guide. Check which formations are within your comfort zone, and this will guide you as to which workshop level is right for you. As always, check with a teacher familiar with your dancing to help you with the decision.

Cost- $50




Ball music supplied by The Tartan Players from Vancouver British Columbia.  The event will take place at the Edelweiss Club.  This year, the format will be a grand march at 7:20 pm, followed by the dance, and finger foods during the evening.
