Dancing in Vercors, Méaudre Reel Book 1


During the Covid pandemic, the Méaudre Reel wanted to continue promoting SCD but what could we do to keep a link with all our dancers?
After spending 2 months keeping everyone busy with a cooking challenge (one Scottish recipe to cook per week), we were allowed, fortunately, to return to dancing in January 2021 .... but it was only for 3 weeks before a new lockdown came into place. What could we do then with our dancers?
To replace our SCD lessons, we organised 3 different ‘dancing' times from January to April 2021. One of those dancing times was a SCD workshop for the Méaudre Reel teenagers on Saturday mornings. The teenagers worked in teams to devise new dances. Once the dance was created on paper and, after washing hands thoroughly, we would dance it (wearing masks) to check that it could really be danced. They often had to go back to thinking and working on paper, then walk through again before dancing it one last time.
This book (purchase order) is the result of the SCD workshops with the Méaudre Reel teenagers. A few dances, created long before the pandemia, have also been added.

"C'est pour vous" is a dance devised by Célie (8 years old) and Maëlle (9 years old) who were bored during lunch time :
