Scottish country dancing is fun and wonderful exercise
for both body and mind. We welcome dancers of all ages and
levels of experience and our dance programmes include simple
dances for beginners as well as those for the more
experienced. We have a team of MCs who are happy to call or walk
through our dances
so that everyone can join in.
St. Columba's Lower Hall is a lovely place to
dance. Directions to the hall are given here. You don't need to come
with a partner or to wear a kilt, but should wear either pumps
or soft, flat shoes (not trainers). If you are coming

There is no charge to attend the evenings (except for Band Nights) and dancers are asked to contribute £1.50 for tea and biscuits in the interval.
Links to the Church web-site and to other Scottish
Country Dance groups which meet at St. Columba's are on the Links page.
