Dancers of all ages and levels of experience are welcome, and new members are welcome at any time.

The emphasis is on fun. All we ask is that if you come to one of our dance evenings, you’re happy to dance with everyone – man with man, woman with woman, or man with woman!

What you’ll need…

  • Love of dancing
  • Willingness to learn
  • Comfortable shoes, e.g. trainersGG's Winter Ceilidh 2015_7592

What you DON’T need…

  • A partner
  • A kilt – that’s optional!
