Monday 25 th  February - Monday 4 th  March with Marian, Max & Issy On   the   5   main   dancing   nights   there   will   be   15   dances   (16   on   the   last   night),   with   a   10min   or   so   interval   half   way through, and we will aim to be finished by 11.00pm. Thursday will be the non-dancing night.   This   year   each   evening’s   programme   contains   one   or   two   new-to-most-of-us   dances,   which   are   significant   either   to me,   the   Band,   from   a   recently   published   Book/CD   or   reflect   the   fact   that   we   have   dancers   from   many   different areas   of   the   UK,   plus   a   significant   number   from   Canada   and   the   US.   Hopefully   most   of   the   other   dances   will   be familiar   to   you   all   but   we   will   offer   a   walk-through   session   (at   say   4.30pm)   on   the   main   dancing   days   for   people   to learn/brush-up   on   the   dances   for   that   day   so   that,   it   is   hoped,   everyone   who   would   like   to,   will   feel   able   to   get   up and join in during the evening, when there will just be a reminder from the MC in most cases.
Scottish Dancing in Madeira in February-March 2019
Evening dance programmes
For   most   of   us,   this   is   the   most   important   part   of   the   holiday   and   so   I   want   to   get   it Right for everyone! We will be following the established pattern ...   Dancing   will   commence   each   evening   around   8.30   pm.   as   soon   as   possible   after   our evening   meal.   On   the   first   night   (Monday   of   both   weeks)   we   like   to   have   a   short programme,   dancing   to   CDs,   as   a   ‘Welcome   &   How Are   You?’   though   a   few   guests   may not   have   arrived   in   time   to   eat   and   dance,   and   so   we   will   catch   up   with   them   in   the bar afterwards possibly.

Monday 18 th  - Monday 25 th  (CD Week) On   Tuesday,   Wednesday,   Friday   &   Saturday,   there   will   be   12   dances   on   the   programme,   with   a   10min   or   so   interval half   way   through,   and   we   will   aim   to   be   finished   by   11.00pm.   Thursday   will   be   the   non-dancing   night   and   on Sunday   we   will   have   a   Ceilidh   /   Party   night   with   requested   dances   from   earlier   in   the   week.   There   will   be   an opportunity   each   afternoon   for   a   walk-through   of   the   less   well-known   dances   and   during   the   evening   recaps   and walk-throughs where necessary.
I have produced cribs (in MiniCrib style) for each week which you can download here:   CD Week Cribs Band Week Cribs or   if   you   prefer   other   styles   and/or   want   to   watch   videos   then   a   search   for   Madeira   on   SCDDB    will   show all the programmes for both weeks.  
For   those   of   you   who   live   local   to   the   East   Midlands   (or   would   like   to   travel   to   join   us),   we   will   have   three   sessions of The   Sunday   Class   when   we   will   concentrate   on   requested   dances   from   the   Madeira   programmes. These   will   be   on Sundays   6 th    January   &   10 th    February   at   Eastwell   and   Sunday   20 th    January   at   Castle   Bytham.   See   the   Venues    page   for more details of these places.
