Meet the Committee
She is the oldie on the organizing committee, with Emma keeping her young, and Shona and Duncan keeping her on track with their years of SCD experience. Liz’s heritage is 50/50 Irish and English, with no Scottish forebears at all. She grew up on the beach at The Mount, before university and a business career, and came to SCD with her husband Mike Ross in 2009.
For those who don't know me, my name is Duncan and I have been dancing forever.
As a recently retired business owner, Shona brings her years of event management & organisational experience to the committee of the 2022-2023 Summer School.
Shona will be looking after Registrations & Finance, and is hoping (after the disappointment of the past two years’ SS cancellations) to be flooded with applications to support this year’s Summer School.
Be in early, as there are only so many spaces. See you there!
Summer Schools have been some of my favourite Scottish Dancing experiences, and I’m excited to be a small part in bringing that to life once more. My main role in the committee is marketing and media – and I’m constantly amazed at the incredible knowledge and financial skills of my fellow committee members! I study biomedical engineering and psychology, and in my spare time I love eating interesting bread.
Join us for a Scottish Country Dancing extravaganza!
