Dance Information

This dance was devised for Alec Green (1930-2015) by Roy Goldring. It was in recognition of all Alec Green's work on the club's newsletters for Leeds RSCDS, which he carried out until 2004. He was an active club member from the beginning of the club in the 1950s, latterly President 1996-2000.

A scribe is traditionally a person who writes books or documents by hand as a profession and helps the city keep track of its records.
