Friday Basic

Scottish Country Dancing Classes

Sponsored by the Washington, D.C. Branch

March 8, 2019 class will be at Local Motion in Alexandria, VA

* What:

Scottish Country Dancing is a modern form of social dancing based on Scottish dance traditions with roots going back for centuries. Dancers in sets of 3 or more couples work together to dance a series of formations to driving reels, jaunty jigs, snappy strathspeys or lilting slow airs.

Friday Basic Classes cover fundamentals of technique like footwork, handing, and phrasing in a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. Each evening also includes some easy, fun dances using basic steps and some figures.

* Why:

For fun! Make new friends, listen to great music, and get some exercise!

* Who:

You! Classes are open to all. No partner needed! No experience necessary!

Soft-soled shoes and clothing allowing freedom of movement are recommended.

Friday evenings, 8-10 p.m. Class meets twice a month from September - May and once a month from June - August. Schedule subject to change - please contact Yvonne at or 703-624-0795 to confirm.
