On December 7, Anthea and Doug gave a presentation on Scottish Country Dancing to Mrs. Hester's sixth grade class at Sycamore Elementary School in Claremont, which their niece Emily attends. With them went their roving ambassador of goodwill, Maggie. They talked about Scottish dress and demonstrated a few simple dance steps and figures, and then taught the students an easy, fun dance. Maggie, as usual, was a big hit with everyone. Younger niece Kaiti also dropped in on the class that day.
The students sent back notes of appreciation, along with the wonderful pictures below of their impressions of the day. Click on a picture for a full-size version of it.
