Registered Charity: 1074609
We are a branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society and a Registered Charity, run by a committee elected by our members at our Annual General Meeting. Classes are conducted by dance teachers.
General dance classes
Ralph Allen School We have general dance classes for a range of abilities and experience, and a beginners' class, on Tuesday evenings at Ralph Allen School from 7.30 - 9.00.
We are unable to offer classes for beginners during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Bathampton Village Hall On Thursday afternoons at Bathampton, we have a beginners' class with simpler dances for the first hour or so, followed by a general class. The class lasts for 3 hours from 1.30, but people come and go during the afternoon.
There are steps and formations to learn in Scottish Country Dancing, which we'll help you to learn and experienced dancers will help you, too.
Join us on Tuesdays or Thursdays or both, as you wish. You needn’t bring a partner.
Warming up at classes We start and end classes with stretching exercises.
Physical problems or injuries? Tell the class teacher if you have any physical problems or injuries that might restrict your movements and tell them if you encounter any problems or hurt yourself while dancing.
What do the classes cost?
You can pay per session (£5 per session for autumn 2020) or by subscription. With a subscription, you can come to both the Tuesday and Thursday classes at no extra cost. See our membership form on this website to find out about subscription rates or ask our Membership Secretary.
Dances during the year
We hold dances with live music at local halls during the year, which members of other Scottish dance groups attend, too, and we go to the dances they organize.
