Dance to Hot Rats with John Sweeney presented by Contrafusion
7:30pm to 8.00pm: Fun Ceilidh Skillz Workshop
8:00pm to 11:00pm: Dance to Hot Rats’ wonderful music!
During the interval I will be teaching the Salty Dog Rag for those who would prefer to dance rather than have a break.
The Salty Dog Rag is a fun couple dance from the 1950s. As you can see from these two videos, you can do it in an energetic style or a laid-back style - your choice. Or you can just watch!
