Young Dancers

Our young dancers enjoy lots of fun at their classes and events.

Saturday morning Children’s class

Our regular Saturday morning Children’s class will be restarting early in 2022 and is aimed at P1–P5.

Our youngest dancers learn rhythm and movement to music, offering children the chance to enjoy Scottish country dancing and ceilidh music in a fun environment, meeting new friends and learning the basic shapes of formations and some fun easy dances.

Leading on from this, as the children gain more experience, they develop their knowledge of Scottish country dance formations and steps while continuing to expand their knowledge of dances.

Older Children

Our older group, aged 10 to 15 (P6 – S3), meet occasionally, and enjoy performing at demonstrations and festivals. Anyone in P6 and above interested in dancing should get in touch with us as we are always delighted to welcome new members to this group.

We offer opportunities for all young dancers to be involved in competitions, performances and displays to boost their confidence, build their teamwork skills and for a chance to perform in front of an audience.

Children of all ages are also offered the opportunity to work towards Graded Medal Tests, certified by the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.
