About Elizabeth 

Elizabeth started Scottish Country dancing in Buxton when her children were young. She took many opportunities to improve her country dancing skills at Day, Weekend, Summer and Winter Schools. Elizabeth taught the children’s class of RSCDS Sheffield for a few years and, on occasion, has been invited to teach Branch and other classes around the Midlands. She also took up Ladies’ Step Dance, forming a class in the Birmingham area. 

Elizabeth served as Chairman and in other roles at RSCDS Sheffield and then, on her move to Warwickshire, served on the Birmingham Branch Committee and as Chairman. For Birmingham, she has been instrumental in promoting the Branch, both in dancing and the organisation of the Demonstration Team at small, large and international events.  To celebrate the Branch Diamond and Platinum anniversaries, she was a lead figure in the promotion and production of dance books written by members of the Branch, with a CD for the Diamond and videoing of the dances for the Platinum.  

Elizabeth enjoys promoting the technique, the steps and formations, and seeing dancers performing to the best of their ability and their pleasure at the achievement but she also highlights the fun and sheer enjoyment of dance.
