Mrs. Hazel Aitken taught dancing in the YMCA on the south side of Glasgow Road for 25 years from 1983 until the YMCA closed around 2008. Fondly remembered, hundreds of girls and a few boys must have passed through those doors in all that time. Margaret Haliburton was the hallkeeper.
I’ve written extensively about the YMCA before, but I’d love to add some detail to this particular business. What can you tell me about the dance school? Were there assistant teachers? Did YOU attend? What nights was it held on? What can you add?
