Orpington Scottish Dancing

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 £4 per week for members (annual sub £3) and £4.50 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.

What you will need

Soft shoes for dancing in, enthusiasm and a sense of fun! All new dancers are welcome: on their own, with friends or as a couple.
