Dance Repertoire

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 (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 Featured Dances 2017 - 2018

We feature a different set of dances each year so that club members gradually become familiar with them and can dance them with relatively little instruction.  This year we are calling these the Club Specials and MCs at the social evenings will be asked to include them in their programmes in rotation to 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.
