Scottish Country Dancing

 
Thursday evenings, 7:45 – 10.00pm Sept-May Liddington Village Hall

Our group was set up in 1992 to support the building of a Village Hall in Liddington. We are a friendly, enthusiastic, sociable band of dancers.
Classes are led by a rota of Royal Scottish Country Dance Society qualified teachers and senior members of the Group.

We welcome newcomers so whether you are new to dancing or new to the area, you will be most welcome. For classes we wear casual clothes and soft soled shoes.

Scottish Country Dancing is really good exercise, a lot of fun and helps to keep the brain active. If you are looking for an evening which gives you physical and mental exercise along with lots of laughter then the LSCD is the place for you!

No partner is required and there is no need to be Scottish.

When & Where we meet:

Liddington Village Hall Church Rd, Liddington, SN4 0HB

Approx 2 minutes drive from the Great Western Hospital & J15 of the M4. The Hall has its own car park.

It has a suspended wooden floor, which is perfect for dancing. A professional sound system is installed so there is excellent sound reproduction for our music. There are also good kitchen facilities for party nights.

We dance most Thursday evenings between the beginning of September to the end of May with a break for Christmas and Easter

Fees:
£20 for a 10 week session
£3.00 a session for ‘Pay as you Go’                            Free Taster Session

Beginners:      Beginners are integrated into the class and by arrangement, we provide extra tuition to teach the basics steps and formations of SCD making it easier for them to improve their dancing skills.
