Additional Class Information

What to wear? Scottish Country Dancing can be energetic although you can put in as much or as little as you like. We recommend that you wear layers of clothes - possibly light trousers or a full skirt, a T shirt and something on top for warming up or the slower dances.

What shoes do I wear? Scottish Country Dancing shoes come in many guises from ballet type shoes (with a full width sole unlike proper ballet shoes) to laced soft shoes and to those with a T bar. All proper Scottish Country Dancing shoes are very soft and comfortable, and can be bought from most dancing outlets and shops like McCullochs on Dundas Street. Before you buy shoes, you might prefer to come along to the class in soft soled flat shoes (trainers are ideal) and see what your teacher suggests or what others are wearing.

Is there live music? Christmas and Year End Ball-yes else No, we are using digital music.
