Welcome to the Peterborough Scottish Country Dance Society
We love Scottish country dancing, and we want as many people as possible in this area to experience it!
We run weekly dance classes for anyone interested in learning more about Scottish country dancing. Our dance classes are run by an experienced, qualified teacher.
We hold monthly Friday social dances when we enjoy the highly social side of Scottish country dancing and put into practice what we have learned. The Friday socials feature live music and, at intermission, refreshments supplied by our members.
We always host a Burns Night in January — a celebration of the life and poetry of Robert Burns.
We host a Scottish Country Dance Workshop Weekend at Stoney Lake in May that includes a Friday night Welcome dance, instruction on Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon, a Saturday night Ball, and a Sunday morning gathering. The Stoney Lake workshop also features internationally recognized teachers of Scottish country dancing.
During June and July, we run our popular “Dancing on the Deck” — outdoor dances on Tuesday evenings on the patio behind the Silver Bean Café in Millennium Park, Peterborough. These special events are ideal ways to experience Scottish country dancing in a fun, casual environment.
From time to time we also put on demonstrations of Scottish country dancing. The photograph on our homepage is of a demo held on Canada Day, July 1 2015 at Del Crary Park. (Photo courtesy of the Peterborough Examiner.)
