Dunedin Dancers

A typical Wednesday evening

Weekly Dancing

Dunedin Dancers meet every Wednesday evening (apart from holidays) in the Morningside Parish Church Hall, Cluny Gardens (click here for a map) for social Scottish Country dancing from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm.

The Autumn term starts on September  7th 2016, ends December 14th
The Spring term starts on January  11th 2017, ends April 5th
The Summer term starts on April  26th 2017, ends June 21st
... all dates inclusive.

The dances are chosen and called by a different member of our group each week.
Visitors are very welcome; each evening only costs £3 (or £2 if you are under 25), although it is cheaper if you pay for the term or year which you can do either at the class or here via PayPal:

Dress is informal. We dance to live music from one of our regular musicians playing accordion every second week; on the other evenings we dance to recorded music. There is a short break half way through the evening for juice, biscuits and socialising, and after the dancing several of us usually go to a local pub for more socialising!

We do not run classes to teach dances or technique so our group is not ideal for absolute beginners.
The Edinburgh Branch of the RSCDS run beginners classes if you require them.

 

Dances

Dunedin Dancers currently organises three dances each year, in November, March and June. All Country Dancers are welcome. Information about the dances will be provided on this website, or if you would like to receive details of our dances and our festival by e-mail, please enter your e-mail address in the space in the left column, and click on “Add”.

Our next dances will be:

  • Dunedin Summer Dance: Saturday 10th June 2017
  • Dunedin Assembly 2017: Saturday 18th November 2017

If you need further dancing fixes in between, Trinity Scottish Country Dance Club run an informal dance every second Saturday.

 

Festival

We held our previous International Folk Dance Festival in 2015, and the next one is to take place in 2017
