I have great fun in Christ Church Parish Hall each Monday evening. I belong to the group of Scottish Country Dancers who meet in the hall each week for a couple of hours.

This summer, on Monday evenings 12th August until 9th September (5 weeks), 7:30 to 9:30pm, we are going to hold a Taster Course so that adults and accompanied 11 to 18 year olds can come along and find out what it is all about with other new beginners. We will be able to take it really slowly and learn the very basic moves and steps. Cost of the course will be 10 towards hall fees.

Scottish Country Dancing is a social form of dancing where two or more couples dance patterns or figures in a sequence. It is really enjoyable and keeps us fit both mentally and physically.

Through the year the Monday night class is an all-ability class and has a relaxed atmosphere. We learn dances and figures week by week and have social dancing once a month. Experienced dancers are at hand to help the less experienced.

All you need to do is bring yourself (no partner necessary) and some flat, soft shoes. After the course you will be ready to attend our Monday night class which is all-ability at Christ Church Hall, Victoria Road, Fulwood, PR2 8NE. Come and make new friends!
