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 12th 2018, ends December 19th 2018
The Spring term starts on 9th January 2019, ends 3rd April 2019
The Summer term starts 24th April 2019, ends 19th June 2019
... 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 £4.
For regular visitors it is cheaper if you pay in advance for the entire term or year
  (£50 for the Autumn term, £45 for the Spring term and £30 for the Summer term; £100 for the entire year) .
You can do this 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.
