Young Dancers

Join us for fun, country dancing classesPoster 2019 for Children on Saturday mornings.

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

Our Children’s 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!

When do we meet?


Saturday mornings from 11 January until 28 March, except 8 and 15 February

10.00 – 10.45 am   Fun for aged 5+

10.45 – 11.00 am   P3+ continue dancing

Parents are welcome to stay or drop off and pick up

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!
