No partner necessary, beginners welcome.
At least two practices are mandatory for beginners. The more familiar you are with the dances the more you will enjoy them – and that is the aim and success of the ball – Fun – not necessarily perfect footwork. We have been reeling, stomping, hooting and howling with laughter together for over 40 years!
