Salt Spring Island Scottish Country Dance Club offers classes both for beginners and more experienced dancers. Dancing is a great way to keep fit, socialize, and connect with a tradition that is centuries old, steeped in history yet still changes with the times. Scottish Country dancing extends well beyond the bounds of Scotland and may be enjoyed here on Salt Spring Island as well as world wide.┬áThere are groups in every country and Salt Spring Island Scottish Country Dance Club loves to welcome visitors. We are a friendly, fun-loving group of dancers. Please note bringing a partner is not a prerequisite to joining in the dancing. Please wear soft soled shoes. We host an Open House at the beginning of each new term, September and February. The first two visits are complimentary.
Club activities include special social events throughout the year; a welcome back wine and cheese evening, annual workshops, summer dancing, Simply Scottish on Salt Spring (a weekend of workshops and dance). We encourage our club members to go to off island events hosted by other clubs and we offer opportunities for advancing our own dance technique. Look out for our annual community Robbie Burns Dinner and Dance held in January.
Mission: The purpose of the club is to promote Scottish Country Dancing in accordance with the purpose of the Royal Scottish Country Dancing Society.
