Beginner Courses

You don’t need swords, kilts, a partner or a Scottish accent. No previous dancing experience necessary.

Wear a pair of soft soled shoes, so that you can feel the floor under your feet. Dress comfortably – skirts, shorts or loose trousers will give your legs more freedom when you’re flying along!

Our courses are divided into two stages, and are designed to cater for absolute beginners and those with some dance experience.

Beginners Stage 1

This course is for new dancers who wish to learn steps and basic dance formations that are the building blocks of Scottish Country dancing.

You will be introduced to Jigs and Reels and will learn a series of lively, beginner friendly dances.

Beginners Stage 2 (Follow-On)

This course is for dancers who have some Scottish Country dancing experience and wish to improve their technique and knowledge of the dance figures. It is an ideal follow-on for anybody who has attended our stage 1 course or anyone who feels a bit rusty and wants to brush up on their skills.

The course builds on the steps and dance figures learnt in our beginners’ course with a focus on technique. This course also introduces the strathspey step and more challenging dances.
