Come and join us for the fun, fitness and friendship. You will be made very welcome. Ball Questionnaire....
Scottish Country Dancing is the social dancing of Scotland and is characterised by the style of its music, often Scottish, Irish or early American. You don't have to be a Scot to find your foot tapping to the irresistible rhythms of our reels, jigs and traditional strathspeys. The dancing is fun, and can be energetic so a great way to keep fit. It has more formations than ceilidh or barn dancing, hence the weekly classes to enjoy new dances and recap old favourites for specific dance events.
If you are a beginner or used to dance a while ago at school, try a beginner's class. (See FAQ's for common questions and answers.)
Bring a smile and a sense of fun. Meet new people, make new friends and be part of our welcoming family. No one is left sitting on the sidelines.
Dancers of all ages at various events enjoying the fun. Events are varied though it is not every year we dance for the Queen!
