The Dance Diary lists forthcoming Scottish Country Dance events in the area bounded by Birmingham and Coventry to the north; Bristol and Bath to the south; Oxford and Abingdon to the east; Hereford and Ross to the west.
I am always pleased to add other events to the Diary provided that they are within the area, and are strictly Scottish country dance events, (not dinner dances, St. Andrews dinners, Burns suppers etc). Please send details to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a web site as the information I receive comes in in a steady stream. This is an unofficial service and so I cannot impose any deadline. Having a website means it should be permanently up to date.
The Annual is Cheltenham Scottish Society’s Annual Dance which will be held on Saturday 22nd February 2014,
dancing to the music of Iain MacPhail and His Scottish Country Dance Band.
Cheltenham Scottish Society's End-of-Season Dance to be held on Saturday 1st June 2014.
List of Popular Dances
We take part in Scottish Country Dancing for the enjoyment.
Granted we slave away at our classes and we learn dances,
but the enjoyment comes when we go to a ball on a Saturday night.
This is where we let our hair down (those who have any) enjoying doing dances we know.
It follows that the more familiar the programme of dances is, the greater
the enjoyment, as a ball is no place to learn a new dance.
With this in mind I have listed dances in order of last season’s popularity.
Valuable advice from the Leeds Scottish Country Dance Club on
compiling a programme for a ball or other major event.
