Scottish Country Dancing comes to St Mary

Starting from 6 June 2024, the Parish Hall will host a regular Thursday evening Scottish Country dance class from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at a cost of £5 per session.

Scottish Country Dancing is the distinctively Scottish form of country dance, derived mainly from the English style of the 17th Century: “longways for as many as will” dances which often used Scottish tunes. The result being one which the whole of Scottish society could feel comfortable; the elegance and courtesy of the ‘country dance’ and the energy and step precision of the old ‘reels’.  

Having fun, making friends and keeping fit are just some of the many benefits you can look forward to when you dance ‘Scottish’ and the group 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).

All welcome. To find out more, contact Brenda on 862357
