Scottish dancing is fun, and helps you to keep fit as well as being a sociable activity. Come and give it a try - you'll find we are very welcoming. We usually have a session for new dancers in a separate room, and a beginners course is starting in September.
Men note: you don't need a kilt.
Will I feel welcome? One of our beginners said: "The fact that you make it easier for new members to join in with established dancers by having some basic teaching from a very tolerant and patient tutor is matched by the friendliness of the group. Rarely have I been involved with any group who aren't the least bit 'cliquey'. Made a huge difference being welcomed and accepted so readily."
Do I need to bring a partner? No, we change partners regularly and partners will be arranged for you. If you have never tried Scottish dancing before, we will start you with our beginner's group.
Can I bring a partner who doesn't dance? Indeed, you can. They will find plenty of people to talk to and the tea break is particularly sociable!
What should I wear? Any light clothing will be fine. We suggest layers; Scottish dancing is not a strenuous exercise, but it is exercise and you are likely to get warm so may want to remove a jumper, for example. Bring light shoes, preferably with a thin sole. Those of us who dance regularly wear ghillies or ballet pumps, but these aren't necessary to start with.
