General Information about our Dance Evenings
We do around 12 dances
each evening with a tea-break half-way through.
Some dances are highlighted that they are to be danced with an
experienced partner and some are for proficient dancers only. We hope new dancers will enjoy watching
our experienced dancers doing one or two more challenging dances per evening.
The aim is for everyone to enjoy their dancing!
The MC for the evening talks us through the various
parts of the dance while we walk through it.
Any new or inexperienced dancers get a chance to practice during
the walk-through which helps them learn the dance.
Thursday there is a tuition session from 7.30pm to 8pm.
Here you can learn the basic steps and moves that will be danced
that evening. Everyone is encouraged to come to the tuition!
Soft-soled shoes are ideal. Kilts and long white dresses with tartan sashes are not needed!
On our special evenings we like to dress up with some Caledonian flourishes.
