On the Grounds of the National Cathedral School, Washington, DC
Cecily started Scottish Country Dancing at Swarthmore College in 1973. She married her first Scottish Country Dance teacher, Geoffrey Selling, and they have been happily dancing and teaching ever since. Cecily received her prelim. at St. Andrews Summer School in 1977 and received her full certificate in 1981, just one month before her first child was born. She has taught at a variety of workshops and weekends including Pinewoods, Asilomar weekend in California, and other locations from Seattle Washington to Fredricton, New Brunswick. Cecily and Geoffrey co-wrote a Handbook for Scottish Country Dance Teachers as a help to candidates and teachers of SCD. Outside of dancing, Cecily is Assistant to the Director of Stratford Friends School, a Quaker school for elementary school children with learning disabilities. Learning styles and challenges are two of Cecily's interests both professionally and in dancing.
