Happy New Year!

2016 is coming to end. Looking back over the past year, we cannot fail to mention Spring School of Scottish Dancing in Yaroslavl with record number of participants. The school became the most important event of Scottish dancing life in Russia. The number of people interested in Scottish dancing and sharing joy and experience with each other is constantly increasing.

Such stars of Scottish dancing as Malcolm Brown, Andrew Nolan and Jamie Berg visited us in 2016. In addition, Russian teachers gave series of workshops in different cities, spreading Scottish culture.

We had two grand balls in Moscow in the beautiful St. Andrews Anglican Church. The music was played by well known Anatoly Isaev and Vladimir Volkov, and by the band Clann McCeol, reunited after long vacation. They made a great performance on St. Andrews ball. Also we organized several Ceilidh dancing evenings with Misty Mountains band playing. 

Our Cape Breton dancing group is gaining momentum. Our dancers performed together with Gaelic Choir of Moscow, and we plan to continue this partnership. We continued to participate in charity projects together with storytelling club and Gaelic choir in children hospitals.

For the conclusion of this year we had social dancing on December 29th. It had a great success. You can look at the photos in our gallery.
In 2017 our classes will start on Thursday, January 12th. On January 15th we invite everybody to our Ceilidh dancing in Vermel.
And, of course, come and join us to our anniversary 5th Spring School of Scottish Dancing in Kazan in May!

We wish everybody that their wishes come true!
Happy Dancing!
