This would be from 7:30pm to 8pm on the normal Tuesday club night.  Other clubs in the area also have classes.

How does Scottish dancing work ? ... You'll dance with a partner, usually a different one for each dance and typically in groups of three or four couples. Click on the video at the top to watch us dancing The Blue Eyed Lassie.

Do I have to bring a partner? ... No, in Scottish country dancing we usually change partners after each dance. It's social, you get to meet and dance with different people. 

Do I need special clothes? ... No, come along in whatever you feel comfortable to dance in. Some men wear kilts, but it's a personal choice. 

What about shoes ? ... It's easier to dance in soft, flat-soled shoes and safer for toes too. Once you decide you enjoy dancing we can suggest dancing shoes. 

Is there an age limit ? ... Come along, if you are willing to enjoy the dancing there is no upper limit on age.
