Join us for fun country dancing classes for young dancers on Saturday mornings.

Want your child to learn how to dance? Get some exercise? Or perhaps make life-long friends?

Our classes are a great way for young dancers to have fun, make new friends and learn new skills.

Our Teachers encourage the children to co-operate and work together as a team in a fun, safe environment.

Each week they will help the children improve their skills and increase their knowledge.

You’ll be amazed at how quickly your child improves…and we’re not just talking about their new-found skills in dancing. They also grow in self-esteem and enjoy the benefits of improved co-ordination and fitness levels!                           


Choose the class that’s right for your child:

               Beginners         11.30 – 12.15 Aimed at Primary 1 – 3 you will learn rhythm and movement to music, and improved confidence, attention and listening skills. They’ll also learn the social aspect of dancing learning some simple dances with a partner and friends in a team.
  Intermediate   12.15 – 13.00 For Primary 4 and above, building on what would have learnt in our Beginners class you will start to improve your steps, learn more complex formations and dances which require teamwork and co-operation.
  Advanced**                 contact us for info about times/dates                                         For Primary 6 and older, or young dancers who already have Scottish dancing experience. You’ll get lots of opportunities to dance in Festivals and Displays which will encourage you to develop your interest in Scottish country dancing.

What should we wear/bring with us?

Dancing can be energetic so wear something comfortable and easy to move in.

Scottish country dancing shoes are very soft and comfortable, and can be bought from most dancing outlets and shops like Dancewear in Edinburgh. Before you buy shoes, you might prefer to come along to the class in soft soled flat shoes (trainers are ideal).    

Please bring a drink with you as dancing makes you very thirsty!                             

What does it cost? 

Beginners and Intermediate - £5 PAYG or £40.50 or the 9 week term 

Advanced                                 £5 PAYG or £27 for the  6 week term
