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 typically (i.e. not Covid times...) 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.
Our classes begin promptly on time, so arrive early and be ready to dance. Our classes progress from easier to more advanced social dancing through the course of each evening. Beginners are encouraged to stay and watch the more advanced dancing. As each dancer gains experience and skills, they are invited to join in the more challenging dances later in an evening.
We are currently querying for availability for each class, so please contact us before showing up to a class so we can make sure we have enough people to dance.
Cost is $6/evening for members, $7/evening for non-members, $3/evening for full-time students. Note that pricing for a Beginners/Basics series is for a whole series. Experienced dancers are welcome to attend a basics class followed by social dancing for the regular evening cost.
Membership is $20/year for an individual, and $30/year for a household. See Membership Form for details.
