This workshop, which will be held at the Masonic Hall (302 Scott St.), is open to beginners and those who have been taking Highland dance lessons in the past.

It is a follow-up to a pair of such workshops led by Hamilton here last August and October.

An introduction to Highland dance will run from 2-4 p.m. both days.
Dances covered will include the Highland Fling, the Sword Dance, the Scottish Lilt, Flora MacDonald’s Fancy, and Sean Triubhas.
Deadline to register is Thursday, May 8 (space is limited).
Those interested in attending are asked to contact Pipe Major Dr. Bruce Lidkea at 274-4295 (home) or 275-9882 (cell), or via e-mail at
