Welcome!

 

We are a welcoming and fun dance society with focus on Scottish Country Dancing. We run classes for various levels, so there is something for everyone, whether you’ve done Scottish Country before or not. We put emphasis on improving your dance technique and learning more difficult (and fun!) dances than just ceilidh dances, and we also have social activities throughout the year.

 

Classes

Our general mixed level classes run on a Thursday night from 7-9pm starting from 18th January 2018 until 29th March 2018 this term. 

Membership

Membership for the semester is £20 for students and £25 for non-students. The more advanced classes have their separate membership fees. If you want to come just to our Thursday class to try it out, you can pay £4 entry to just one class. 

 

Socials

After every class, we will usually go to the pub to relax and have a chat, which gives you the chance to get the know the people you dance with. We also have other socials throughout the year, including our popular cake party, going to see the fireworks, Burns night, and other fun events. At the start of the academic year we also usually hold a welcome ceilidh and taster session.

Balls

Throughout the year, some of our dancers will have the chance to attend balls around the country, for example those hosted by our fellow Scottish universities as well as our own ball in February. If you stay with us for longer and improve your dancing, you may also be able to take part in competitions as part of the GUSCDC team.

Not a university student?

Our alumni group Alba holds monthly social dances. See their page for more information!
