We are a group of Scottish Country Dance enthusiasts, some Scottish, some not, who meet every Wednesday evening to dance. Some of us have been dancing most of our lives; others are new to it. All of us enjoy the opportunity to meet, socialise, learn new dances and dance the familiar ones. Our dances are walked through first, often more than once, to refresh our memories and give newer members a chance to learn them. We are a friendly group and, although we always try to dance our best, we have fun as well and don't take it too seriously.

We recently introduced the idea of "core dances" in which members who wish to do so are invited to dance a single dance per evening without a walkthrough. The aim is to provide an opportunity to learn some dances especially well. "Core dance" programme

Experienced dancers visiting the area are always welcome to join in. Complete beginners are welcome but, as we recognise that Scottish country dancing is not easy to begin with, we would ask those who would like to give it a try to make contact with us first so that we can arrange a suitable introduction and integration. Whilst the beginners' class is in progress we would encourage all beginners to come along and learn the basic elements of Scottish country dancing first.

We generally hold two dances during the year, one in the summer and one in November. Details of the November dance will be published on the website when they are available.
