Learning Scottish country dancing

Our branch classes


Each of the classes below is taught by a qualified RSCDS teacher and provides the opportunity to progress from beginner to intermediate and advanced level dancing. Once new dancers have gained sufficient confidence, they are encouraged to take part in our Social Dances where all dances are walked through. We also hold our Annual Ball for more experienced dancers and a Nice 'n' Easy Social especially for newer dancers. For more details, see our Events Page.

In previous years, we have held an annual workshop when daytime classes are held, including Basic Technique for less experienced dancers and a Technique Class for more experienced dancers. The classes are followed by tea and an Evening Dance. More details will appear on our Events Page.

You can find information about other RSCDS classes and affiliated groups in our area on the contact page.


From time to time we run taster sessions for those wishing to try Scottish country dancing for the first time. No previous experience is required and there’s no commitment to come along again. You don’t need to bring a partner or any special kit, just yourself and some comfortable shoes.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive details of future workshops, please email or call Nicola Scott on 07986 543132.
