New to Scottish Dancing

We hold classes for beginners and improvers on Monday evenings. These take place at St Paul's Church Hall, Crofton Road, Orpington BR6 8JE from 8pm to 10.15pm. During the evening you will learn the steps, the moves and the dances from our qualified and friendly Scottish country dancing teachers. There are always experienced dancers on hand to help steer you in the right direction. Your first taster evening is free! Then it's only £5 per week for members (annual sub £5) and £6 for non-members. Interested? Please contact us via email (click on the logo at the bottom of the page) or just turn up on any Monday (excl Bank Holidays) and you can be assured of a warm welcome.

The Society has been promoting social contact and friendship between Scots and non-Scots since our foundation in 1937. Our main interest is Scottish Country Dancing but we are also interested in Scottish culture and traditions holding Burns Night and St Andrew's celebrations.

We are run by a committee under the leadership of our President Hadyn Davies, Vice President Ginny Colenbrander and Secretary Deirdre Wilden. Other committee members are Angela House (Past President), Di Lewis (Treasurer), Angela Campbell, Linda Scothern, Joan Kinnear and Roger Randall.
