Welcome to the Dingwall Scottish Country Dance Club

Welcome to the Dingwall Scottish Country Dance Club's website.

We welcome adults to join our Club and attend our classes and rallies.  If you have danced in the past, fancy a new hobby, moved to the area or are just on holiday in the area, do contact us and join us for some dancing.

If you have not tried Scottish country dancing before don't worry -  we will make you welcome and your first class will be free.  You don't need any special clothes or equipment.  Ladies may wish to wear a skirt but trousers are fine.  For classes men generally wear trousers.  A kilt is not necessary but many men wear the kilt for rallies at which most ladies will wear a dress or skirt.  Soft shoes are necessary and it is best to purchase them as soon as you feel it is a hobby for you. We can advise you on different styles. You do not have to bring a partner.  Scottish country dancing is very sociable, people mix and you will have a new partner for each dance.

Our weekly classes are in the Church Hall in Conon Bridge (see the Classes page).  All adults are welcome to join us on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 pm.  Charge £2 including tea and biscuits.

On the 18 and 19 July members of the Club did a demonstration of 8 Scottish country dances in Tesco in Dingwall as part of the #TescoDanceBeats This was a fund raising event for three charities - Diabetes UK, Cancer Research and the British Heart Foundation. We were delighted to take part in fund raising for these charities and also for the publicity for our Club. We hope that we might have encouraged people to come and join us. Tesco in Dingwall raised £980

A BBC Radio Scotland producer visited our class in April and interviewed some of the class about what dancing did for them regarding health and fitness. The show, Personal Best can be heard via this web page
