Scottish Country Dancing

Scottish Country Dancing is social. Four couples dance together in a 'set', to Scottish reels, jigs, hornpipes and strathspeys. During the course of an evening the sets and partners change, enabling you to meet and dance with many other people.

No special costume is required - you don't need to have a kilt! (You will want to get suitable dancing shoes before too long.)


We do not have a beginners' class in the 2023-2024 year. But if you have done Scottish Country Dancing before, we would be delighted to have you join us.

Our Christmas 2016 evening of dancing.

Evelyn, Loys, Alison & Heather at our St Andrews party Nov 27, 2016. Loys was awarded a bottle of scotch for writing the newspaper articles which attracted our new members this fall.

Here we are with travelling musicians Corinna Rose and Leah Dolgoy, who dropped in looking for some fun. (They were stranded in the Comox Valley because the wind cancelled the ferry to their next gig in Powell River.) They were on a Home Routes house concert tour.
