What we're about

Welcome to The Greater Lehigh Valley Dance Network.

Spanning primarily Ballroom and Swing genres of dance, my focus will be on Swing, especially, the West Coast Swing and Hustle.

I dont hold dance events but I and others list them here. I utilize this forum mostly as an information hub for dancers.

Just to be clear, I do not produce these events nor do I get any monetory compensation from these events. I mearly enjoy dancing and spreading the word, "Here are dance events..enjoy!!"

What is posted here is not limited to what I am interested in...you, the members will drive the content, if you choose. All you have to do is suggest!

My goal for this site is to make it the premier source of consolidated dance information in and around the Lehigh Valley. This area includes parts of NJ, NY, Del, Md and major National Events, providing dancers with information on instruction, dances, seminars, festivals and links along with being a communications hub for dancers throughout the region. Use the Message Board..it is for you.

I will be leaning heavily on the Membership for leads, ideas, events, information and direction of this group. Some of you may want to post to the calendar events and you are most welcome. After all, this is your group.

Now get out there and dance! See you all on the boards!!

Scottish Country Dancing

Bethlehem Township Community Center

Scottish Country Dancing is the traditional social dancing of Scotland. Its reels, jigs, hornpipes, and strathspeys have been enjoyed for centuries by Scots, from royalty, to the military, to just plain folks of all ages. The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (www.rscds.org) was formed to preserve this dance form and its music and has branches around the world. The Lehigh Valley SCD Society is an affiliate club of the RSCDS, offering classes so that members can enjoy social dance events in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Join us on Wednesday evenings to learn the steps and figures of these lively jigs and reels and beautiful strathspeys. Be ready to attend dances in the region and around the world. Many figures in the dance are similar to those in square and contra dancing while others are uniquely Scottish. It is also a fun way to keep the mind and body fit! Dress for class is casual - no kilt/formal wear needed. Wear comfortable, soft-soled shoes - no high heels. Dancers of all nationalities and skill level are welcome. Beginners are welcome. Singles and couples are welcome. It is traditional to change partners with each dance, so you do not need to come with a partner. Your first class with us is free, then the cost is $4.00 per class. High school and college students are free with school ID. We can also be contacted through www.facebook.org/LVScotDance or[masked] for questions and schedule changes.
