The set dance classes held on Monday nights have suffered from a dwindling number of students extending back several years. It has been difficult to get one full set (8 people) to class on a regular basis. Often half sets were taught. Speaking with Comhaltas members from other branches the problem is not confined to Ottawa. Therefore, the executive decided that it was best to suspend the set dance classes until such time as sufficient demand presents itself. We wish to thank the set dance instructors that have donated so much of their time and talent and passion to our set dance classes of the last many years: Sheila Scott, Carol Ann Bowers, and Danny Doyle.
The branch is always open to this possibility to teach an enthusiastic group of dancers. Please contact the Chair if you wish to form a group of set dancers and desire instruction.
Chair, Ottawa Branch
