Post Covid dancing

We hope that you are all safe and well, and we look forward to many happy dancing occasions together later this year. Whilst unfortunately we are not able to run classes or events at present (like most other branches) we are delighted to announce that the Paddocks Hotel dance weekend has been organised and will take place, restrictions permitting. See Events page. We will also re-start classes in September, assuming restrictions are lifted. Although we have had to cancel other events, we have booked equivalent dates in 2021 in anticipation of it being possible to dance again. Notably, our Annual Dance at Christmas is rebooked for next December. In addition we would hope to have a celebratory dance as soon as it proves possible, and in anticipation we have even created a programme, which we will publish when a date becomes certain. To keep in touch, we have organised several Zoom events during the latest lockdown, to include some dancing. See Events page for details. Let us look forward to dancing again together.

Men note: you don't need a kilt

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.

On this website you will find out about Scottish Country Dancing in Sutton Coldfield and where to join classes. We also post details of forthcoming social events in the region.

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.

If you have any more questions concerning Scottish Country Dancing or want to get more information please email Frances at or phone 07900 896908‬. Further telephone numbers and email addresses are on the Contacts page.
