Men note: you don't need a kilt

Classes are on Mondays, and the autumn term is 6th September to the 17th December, 7.30pm at All Saints Church Hall, Belwell Lane, Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield B75 4TR Scottish dancing is fun, and helps you to keep fit as well as being a sociable activity. Come and give it a try - you'll find we are very welcoming. We usually have a session for new dancers in a separate room, and there is an opportunity to join the main class later. Men note: you don't need a kilt.

Beginners' questions

Will I feel welcome? One of our beginners says: "The fact that you make it easier for new members to join in with established dancers by having some basic teaching from a very tolerant and patient tutor is matched by the friendliness of the group. Rarely have I been involved with any group who aren't the least bit 'cliquey'. Made a huge difference being welcomed and accepted so readily."

Do I need to bring a partner? No, we change partners regularly and partners will be arranged for you. If you have never tried Scottish dancing before, we will start you with our beginner's group.

Can I bring a partner who doesn't dance? Indeed, you can. They will find plenty of people to talk to and the tea break is particularly sociable!

What should I wear? Any light clothing will be fine. We suggest layers; Scottish dancing is not a strenuous exercise, but it is exercise and you may want to remove a jumper, for example. Bring light shoes, preferably with a thin sole. Those of us who dance regularly wear ghillies or ballet pumps, but these aren't necessary to start with.
