The Virtual Scottish Country Dance Class for Black Mountain Reelers 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic put an end to all Scottish Dancing in Canberra in early March 2020, including the Tuesday midday "Black Mountain Reeler” classes.
The dedicated teachers Ann Parkinson and Brian Gunning created a Virtual Class each week during the shutdown commencing in March 2020 with "Corrievrecken ", the name of one of the biggest whirlpools in the world and ending in September 2020 with the equally appropriate "Back on the Floor".
