Following from the success of the Scottish Dancing and Ceilidhs we have set up some classes in which we aim to teach many of the aspects of Scottish Country Dancing for the beginner to the more accomplished dancer. Although the main emphasis will be on Scottish Country dancing, Ceilidh dances may also be taught.
