Discover Scottish Country Dancing


"Fun, fitness and friendship"


Having fun, making friends and keeping fit are just some of the many benefits you can look forward to when you Dance Scottish and we are always looking for opportunities to involve new dancers.

You don’t have to wear tartan or a kilt (though you can if you like); you don’t need special footwear (comfortable flat shoes are fine); and you don’t have to bring a partner (Scottish country dance involves dancing with different partners).

So, why not give it a try? Whatever your age or ability, you will soon feel part of our dancing community.
