The choreography classes are open to anyone who has done Sophie’s Spring Jig or Reel Series. For those who have not done the series, but wish to join the choreography classes, the series are available on catch-up to watch and take part in at a time to suit you. Learning a routine is a really great way for dancers to consolidate their knowledge and understanding of the steps, as well the transitions between steps, and focus on syncing the steps with the music. These classes will use steps covered during the series to form a full reel step choreography.
The intermediate/advanced classes are particularly aimed at: - Those who already have the basic strathspey, jig and reel steps and would like to learn new step patterns and explore different rhythms, - As well as those who have experience in other percussive dance styles and would like to learn Scottish/Cape Breton steps.
