Dunedin Dancers

A typical Wednesday evening

Weekly Dancing

Dunedin Dancers meet every Wednesday evening (apart from holidays) in the Morningside Parish Church Hall, 2 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 11th 2019, ends December 18th 2019
The Spring term starts on January 8th 2020, ends April 1st 2020
The Summer term starts April 22nd 2020, ends June 17th 2020
... 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.

 

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:

  • Sunday Afternoon Social Dance: Sunday 6th October 2019, with Ewan Galloway (Flier, Cribs)
  • Dunedin Assembly: Saturday 30th November 2019, David Hall and his Band (Booking now closed!)

Tickets will be sent out around the second week of November.




If you need further dancing fixes in between, Trinity Scottish Country Dance Club run an informal dance every second Saturday.
Nearer to our Cluny base, you will also find the Morningside SCD Club.
