Adult Classes

From September to May we run a Beginners Class, a General Class and an Advanced Class for adults. All the classes are very relaxed and informal. There is no dress code, but dance shoes are advisable (soft shoes such as sneakers are ok for the Beginners' class). If in doubt about your level, try the Beginners' class first.    

Beginners' Class
This class is for people with a little, or no experience of Scottish Country Dancing, and for those wishing to learn more of the formations and popular dances. This class is taught by Lorna Valentine and Fiona Mackie on Monday evenings and details are available here                                     

General Class
The emphasis of this class is very much on social dancing. Here you will learn dances old and new, popular and less well known, and all in a relaxed and friendly manner. This is a relatively low impact class. The class is taught in rotation by Sue Steele, Susan Robertson and Joyce Porteous.

The class takes place on Tuesdays, 7.15 to 9.15 pm with a short break for tea (please bring your own cup!). The new session of classes is likely to start on Tuesday 14th September 2021 (check here for updates). £4.50 per session or £22 for a 6-week block. 

Classes are held in St Andrew's Church Halls, King Street, Dundee (next to Wellgate Centre, use door at top of car park). The first few classes will be held in the Glasite Hall at the top of the stairs at the front of the building while the regular hall undergoes repairs. For the access code to the car park, please get in touch (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Alternatively, there is parking in Queen Street off the Seagate (opposite Enterprise car hire) and steps up to King Street.

Advanced Class with Live Music

This class is for dancers with a good knowledge of steps and formations and who wish to learn more challenging dances. Some time is spent on technique and less common formations, with considerable emphasis on teamwork and social dancing. This class benefits from having an excellent musician to play each night (Neil Galloway, Bill Ewan, Luke Brady or Scott Band)

Classes run on Thursdays 7.00-9.00 pm. £27.50 for 6 weeks or £5.50 per night (students £15 for 6 weeks or £3 per night) in the gym hall, Harris Academy. The class is taught by Fiona Mackie. Classes restart on.16th September 2021.

Dancers from this class make up the Branch Demonstration Team. We perform at events throughout our area, helping to promote Scottish Country Dancing in Dundee and pass on our enjoyment of the dance to others.
