Ive just had a phone call and email from Pencaitland Junior Scottish
Country dancers (near Edinburgh). Their teacher is no longer able to teach,
and they have 6 classes of children of various ages 60-70 children
currently dancing. Details below, but it would be a shame if these children
could no longer dance.
If you can help out, please get in touch and Ill pass your details on.

Further to our telephone conversation, here is the info you requested.
Pencaitland junior scottish country dancers is a charity that provides
scottish country dancing lessons for children in the pencaitland area. We
are currently in need of a dance teacher due to long term illness.
The classes run during term time on a Wednesday.
Times of classes are from 3.30pm - 7.30pm.
The classes follow one after the other starting with preschool and moving
upwards with the last class having teenagers.
There are 6 classes in total. 3 x half hour, 2 x 45mins, 1 x 1 hour.
There are up to 4 helpers available, these being teenagers in the later
class or that have previously done the classes and are happy to help out,
especially with the preschoolers and earlier primary years.
We can pay £20 per hour, so £80 for the four hour session.
We have about 60 - 70 children doing the classes and it would be such a
shame if we couldnt carry them on in the future.
Thanks in advance for any help that you can give us, with finding a teacher.
Yours on behalf of Pencaitland Junior Scottish Country Dancers
