There's lots of Scottish dancing in Birmingham and this is a good place to start!
So what is Scottish dancing anyway?
It’s a fun, active way to spend an evening, dancing and socialising!
In every dance, you have a partner (you can choose someone new for each dance!) and are in a set with at least 4 or 6 other people – you can’t get much more sociable than that!
It’s not quite such hard work as highland dancing – we have some steps to get the hang of, but it’s more social than technical or competitive. And it’s a bit like ceilidh dancing, with some dances that are a bit more challenging, to provide a workout for the brain as well as the feet. It can take a bit of practice to get a dance right, but there’s a great sense of achievement when the team comes together and it works! And happily, lots of dances are easy enough to get right every time.
Contrary to expectations, we don’t often dance to bagpipes (thankfully!) – music is usually provided by accordion and fiddle, and we dance to live music at socials and balls at least 4 or 5 times a year in Birmingham. Dancing around the room, in time with the music and so many other people is good for the soul!
There are classes, events and workshops, and you can find out the details by signing up.
