Posts during Covid-19 outbreak
During this time, be sure to check all cancellations on the games spreadsheet
What a wonderful lady who received a Clan Henderson scholarship last year:
Dear Clan Members and Scholarship Committees,
Greetings to everyone, I hope you are finding yourselves and all your members healthy and well. With so much uncertainty in the world right now regarding COVID-19 it is easy to feel unsettled. And with so many of our community events being canceled it can feel very discouraging at this time.
However, I hope to brighten you day a bit. I wanted to tell you about my community and some of the things we are doing to stay proactive. I belong to a dance company out of Clearwater Florida, we are the Tampa Bay Highland Dancers. And my teacher Mrs. Elizabeth Constanine has moved our classes online for now.
It is very exciting that she has found a way to keep us dancing through all these uncharted waters. I have even taken it a few steps further by reaching out to friends that I have made around the globe in places like Spokane WA, Eastern Canada, Scotland, and Dunedin Florida; to see if there is anyone in need of an online practice buddy.
It can be very hard for parents to motivate their kids to practice and I thought I might put a shout-out on FB to see if there is anyone in need of a dance friend to socialize with, exercise with, practice dancing, or for my older peers; perhaps study for any upcoming highland dance exams they are planning to take in the future.
I know this isn't ideally what anyone had in mind for the 2020 Scottish highland dance season, but I hope it helps to keep people practicing, encourages socialization both inside and outside of our normal communities, and helps give people something to look forward to when we can continue with our scheduled events as normal.
I hope this message finds you all in good health. I am praying that our Nation can resolve this issue quickly and that we can all help support each other through these difficult times. I want you all to know that my goals are still the same, they have not changed and I will continue to work toward them even if that means through online instruction with my team of teachers during this time of social distancing.
I want to thank you all for your support and I will continue to update you on my progress. Stay safe and please continue to practice your social distancing skills.
P.s. In the mean time please enjoy some of the artwork that I have been working on when I'm not busy dancing.
