Information about our Dance Evenings
We do around 12 dances each evening with a tea-break
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.
NEW for 2016/17: We
learn and repeat 'Popular dances' regularly so everyone can enjoy these.
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.
Each 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.
When we add a new dance (called a Feature Dance on the programme) we take
a bit more time in walking it through and it stays on the programme for a few weeks so we can learn it.
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.

of the dance and enjoyment of all taking part!
