The holiday break is over and it is great to have the Winter classes for Highland Dancing start up again. This is an excellent program for children interested in learning the Celtic tradition of highland dancing, it will run for 7 weeks starting January 25th. The program is ran through the Department of Recreation for the County of Richmond County, and is held at the St. Peter's Fire Hall on Wednesday afternoons.It will run from 3:30-4:30pm for children ages 5-6 years and from 4:30 - 5:30pm for children 7 years and up.

If you are interested in having a child begin classes call the Richmond County Municipal Office at 226-2400 and ask to speak to the staff of the Recreation Department and they will be happy to give you the registration information.
