For fun, friendship and fitness

If you're looking for gentle exercise in a friendly social atmosphere there is no better pastime than Scottish Country Dancing - we hope you will come along and give it a try.  You don't have to be Scottish and you don't need a partner as we all take turns to dance with each other.  

Classes are held on Wednesday evenings from September through to the end of May at Tarporley Community Centre. Click here for further information about our General Class.

In addition to our regular teaching classes, we arrange a number of dances and Day Schools for various levels of expertise.  Our New Year Ball is the high spot of our calendar.  Look out also for our Spring and Autumn "Nice & Easy" dances and informal Summer Social dance evenings in July. 

Our Wednesday classes are suitable for all levels:

7.00 - 8.00 p.m. 'First Class' - in this session we aim to master the basic steps and formations and warm up to familiar or simple dances - the first hour is suitable for all levels of experience, but beginners are especially welcome. Click here for details.

8.00 - 8.50 p.m. General dancing - we continue to work on technique in the main session; newer dancers integrate with the general class very quickly and the more experienced dancers are always willing to help and encourage.

9.00 - 10.00 p.m. More advanced dancing - a more challenging session for those with more experience, but all are welcome to stay and watch.  Sooner or later, you'll be ready to join in!
