Afternoon MC'ing social dances      Colin Duncan

Colin, from RSCDS BHS Borders Branch, will take us through MC'ing at Social Dances with sections on how to:

  • run a dance from the stage

  • encourage the last dancers onto the floor to make up sets

  • clearly announce and recap dances

  • work with your musicians to give the best event

You will have opportunities to be the MC.

serTA members who had previously paid for this event, cancelled in 2020, will have early notification and their payments will be carried forward.
