We are pleased to report that this April the very talented Amy Richardson and members of Dial-A-Round are launching a new Rounds Club on a Sunday evening between 6pm and 8:30pm at Ruddington Village Hall near Nottingham.  This transition has been very low key but in reality it usurers in a very new and exciting era of Round Dancing in the UK.  The Round Dance Council and the SDCCGB would like to congratulate Amy on her endeavour and wish her every success.

The contribution by Harry & Jean Preston to Squares and Rounds in the Nottingham area has been immeasurable and this new club is a fitting tribute under the inspiring leadership of Amy Richardson.

2015 Cuer School Images

posted 23 Nov 2015, 13:56 by Stephen Pearson   [ updated 23 Nov 2015, 16:15 ]

The latest RDC Cuer School held at Barrow in Cambridgeshire during March was a great success. Cuers from around the country attended the school and benefited from the tuition of the vastly experienced Susie & Gert-Jan Rotschied.

Over the three days the students worked hard in a class room environment with plenty of practical sessions covering every conceivable Round Dance topic. Saturday night everyone had a chance to relax and put into practice the course material and their cueing skills at the multi cuer dance. Feedback from the cuers after the weekend were very positive.

Below are a number of images from the weekend
