CORNONAVIRUS - CLUB NIGHTS CANCELLED

In the light of Government guidelines, our Club Nights have been cancelled with effect from 17th March 2020 until further notice.

Club members will be advised of updates by email, or please check back here for the latest situation.

 

Camberley Reel Club is a Scottish Country Dancing club which meets at 8 p.m. every Tuesday from September to May at St. Paul's Church Hall, Church Hill, Camberley, Surrey.

 

On Tuesday evenings we organise a mix of instruction, social dancing, and party events where we replace our normal half time cuppa with a 'bring a plate' buffet.

 

Membership

 

Your first Tuesday evening is free. After that you can choose to join, and pay an annual membership of £5.00 (reduced if you join after the Spring Ball), and a subscription of £2.00 for each evening you attend. Alternatively, if you only come along occasionally, you can pay £4.00 for each evening as a visitor.

 

Programme of Events and Movement of the Month 2019 - 2020

 

We feature a number of movements each year so that club members become familiar with them and can dance them with relatively little instruction.  This year we are calling these the Movements of the Month.  They will be taught on instruction evenings and MCs at the following social evenings will be asked to include them in their programmes ito reinforce our memory.  Repetition, repetition, repetition.

Dance Repertoire

 

We have introduced a Dance Repertoire of popular dances in the South East of England, categorised by difficulty, from which MCs will be invited to draw the majority of their programmes.

Did you know…?  The pousette is one of the most common methods of progression.  It is found in the dances of the late 18th and early 19th century chiefly, and seems to have been the forerunner of the waltz.  Its name comes from the French “pousser”, to push, and that to a certain extent describes the movement of the man in this formation.  When the [R].S.C.D.S  was formed, this form of progression had lost its original, dignified shape.  Probably the introduction of the waltz had affected it, for instead of the traditional two-hand hold, partners joined as for a waltz or polka and danced round each other with a kind of hop waltz step.  This led to untidiness and lack of control, and even to jazzing.  The Society returned to the old form of pousette as it is done today.
