do contact the Secretary (see below)

Otherwise, just bring along some soft shoes on a Tuesday evening.
next Ball will be held on Saturday 19 November 2016.
That's a departure from our usual recent Spring Ball series because of difficulty finding a suitable timeslot in Spring 2016.
Our last Ball was held on Saturday 25th April 2015 (1930-2330).
We danced in the Old Mill Hall to Ian Muir and the Craigellachie Band.
Here is a printable (PDF) copy of our 2015 Ball flyer
(it includes the programme and contact details to obtain tickets).
The programme (below) has been set up as a dance list on the Strathspey Server
giving you access to cribs, diagrams and even videos of the dances.
Alternatively, here is a two page MiniCrib PDF of the dances.
