Plans were made, in 1980, to hold beginner classes on Saturday nights. At the first class, 19 beginners from Saltcoats and Yorkton, learned Corn Rigs. Classes were held at Fairview School, under the sponsorship of the Yorkton and District Scottish Ethnic Group. (From Let’s Dance – A History of Scottish Country Dancing in Saskatchewan.)
We welcome all dancers (and anyone who wishes to dance).
When and Where
We hope to resume dancing in January of 2022. Usually, we meet Saturday evenings 7:30 – 9:30 from mid-October to the mid-April [remember this is not carved in stone] in the Holy Trinity Anglican Church Hall, 165 2nd Avenue North at the corner of Darlington Street East.
Watch this page and Facebook for updates.
We, in Yorkton, are fortunate to have a full-certificate teacher, Ferne Katzberg, who volunteers to provide wonderful training.
