The society co-ordinates classes and dances for Scottish Country Dancing in Ipswich and the surrounding area.
Several, very friendly and energetic groups in the area run classes and dances for all capabilities and will give you a very warm welcome.
Scottish Country Dancing is great fun. It’s very sociable, is danced by young and old alike all over the world, and is good exercise for both body and mind to boot! Newcomers will be made most welcome whether new to dancing or with some experience. It is not necessary to bring a partner to the classes or the dances, as it is normal to change dancing partners several times during an evening. No special clothes are required, just a pair of soft shoes.
