Dancing for Madiba
Mandela Day is now an annual celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and a call to action for people everywhere to recognise their individual power to make an imprint and take responsibility to change the world around them.

Clan Colquhoun would like to invite you to join us once again for an evening of fun dancing in Fish Hoek, on Monday 16th July, the Monday closest to Nelson Mandela’s 94th birthday on the 18th July and help celebrate the idea that each of us can make a difference in our community.

The programme of dancing will last approximately 67 minutes and we will break for tea, coffee and biscuits.

There won’t be any cost for the evening but you will be asked to bring along tinned or other non-perishable food which will be distributed to those in need in Masiphumelele or dog and kitty food to TEARS in the Valley or the SPCA. We will also be collecting books in reasonable condition which are destined for the HELP THE RURAL CHILD charity bookshop.

When:                    Monday 16th July 2012
Time:                     19:45 dancing to start at 20:00
Venue:                   St Margret's Anglican Church Hall, corner Kommetjie Road and 5th Avenue, Fish Hoek
Dress:                    Informal with a touch of tartan or your favourite Madiba shirt. Men please wear your kilts and show off those knees!
What to bring:       Your food gift and books in good condition.

The dances will mostly be old favourites and a ‘new’ dance to learn together ‘A Reel for Mary’. A crib is available for download below.
