Scottish country dance is sometimes called "the ballroom dancing of Scotland" -- it's a social dance form in which square dancing and contra dancing have their origins. It is also a great form of exercise and aerobic activity. It is practiced world-wide -- learn to dance here in Pittsburgh and you can attend social dance events the world over!
We dance regularly from October through May on Mondays and Saturdays. We take a yearly break from regular dancing during the summer months, though we still have occasional social events during the break.
We start our regular evenings promptly at 7pm with an hour-long "Basics" class followed by more advanced social dancing. Beginners are encouraged to stay and watch the more advanced dancing. As each dancer gains experience and skills, they are welcomed into the more challenging dances later in the evening.
It is always a good idea to contact us before attending for the first time as plans sometimes change.
Cost is $6/evening for members, $7/evening for non-members, $3/evening for full-time students.
Membership is $20/year for an individual, and $30/year for a household.
