Dear Dancing Friends,

Thank you to all who came to the Combined Suffolk Societies day school.  It was a very successful day of tuition and dancing with Tom and Lindsey Ibbotson.  Everyone enjoyed both Tom's instruction and Lindsey's fiddle music during the classes.  Then they combined forces with Tom on keyboard for the social dancing session at the end.  Plans are in hand for another day school next year.

Also thanks to all who made it to our summer dance. It was a super evening's dancing and great atmosphere with superb live music provided by Keith Smith and Anne-Laure Latour. 

We are now in summer when most groups take a break.  But the Woodbridge group at Bredfield Village Hall continue through to the end of July every Wednesday from 7:30 to 9:30pm.  If you have a free evening, come and join us.  We will have a break in August, and then resume in September.


If you have upcoming dances or similar events that you would like us to include, please do let us know. 

Videos of dances

Many people now use the YouTube videos to help with learning new dances, or just refreshing their memory on old ones, and these can be found via links on the Scottish Country Dance Dictionary cribs pages. However, not all dances have videos, and that applies particularly to locally devised dances such as The Saxtead Mill, Gillian's Strathspey and Jim and Margaret's Jig.  So the Woodbridge class has been busy filling a few gaps.
