Dance Club

Scottish Country Dance Club

The Dance Club meets every Tuesday from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm at Rosebird Community Hall, Shipston Road, Stratford Upon Avon CV37 8UL throughout most of the year.

Is a reel part of a fishing line? Is Lochnagar a variety of whisky? Is Waverley a paddle-steamer, a novel or a station in Edinburgh? No – they’re Scottish dances – Reels and Strathspeys!

Why not join us to find out more? We will show you the steps and figures of Scottish Country Dancing to enable you to join us in some of the many thousands of dances which have been compiled.

We are an enthusiastic, informal and friendly group and love to have new members or guests come along when you will be made most welcome. We cater for all abilities; so whether you’re a raw beginner or a seasoned dancer you’ll easily fit in.

Every dance begins with walk-through instructions to ensure that everyone can participate. So there is no need to worry if you’re new to Scottish country dancing – we will ensure you can take part and enjoy the experience! A sense of humour will help because we go wrong a lot, and so will you!

We practise an extensive variety of Scottish country dances, often with guest teachers, and ensure that everyone present knows not only the correct movements but enjoys learning them!

In addition to practising dances, the Dance Club also makes visits to various venues to provide demonstrations. Should you wish to receive such a visit, please contact us.

The Dance Club is affiliated with the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) and also with its Birmingham branch. Occasionally, members attend day schools organised by the RSCDS.
