Welcome! a most friendly club of people who take great pleasure and fun from Scottish Country Dancing... be active... engage the mind... enjoy the company of others...

New to our club? More here. We welcome beginners and experienced dancers.

You don't need to be Scottish, you don't need a partner, and you don't need a kilt, just a pair of soft soled shoes and a desire to dance. Interested in coming to our dances and classes? For more information about Scottish Country Dancing and other local clubs, see our Links page.
