Peterborough Scottish Country Dance Society


What we do

Welcome to the Peterborough Scottish Country Dance Society!    We love Scottish country dancing, and we want as many people as possible to experience it.   


We run weekly dance classes for anyone interested in learning more about Scottish country dancing.  Our dance classes are run by an experienced, qualified teacher.   We hold monthly social dances at which we enjoy the social side of Scottish country dancing and put into practice what we have learned.    These dances feature live music and, at intermission, refreshments supplied by our members.   


We hold a Burns Supper in January - a traditional celebration of the life and poetry of Robert Burns.  

We host an annual weekend-long Scottish country dance workshop at Stony Lake in May, featuring a Friday night welcome dance, instruction on Saturday morning and afternoon, a Saturday evening Ball, and a Sunday morning gathering.   The Stony Lake workshop features internationally recognized teachers of Scottish country dancing.   


 From time to time we also put on demonstrations of Scottish country dancing.   The photo above was taken at a demo dance held on Canada Day, July 1, 2015 at Del Crary Park (photo courtesy Peterborough Examiner).

Yes, many of our members have kilts, but having a kilt is not required!

Upcoming Events

On Tuesday, December 6  our next class takes place at St. John's Anglican Church Hall.   Dancing starts at 7:00 pm.  Because COVID risk is once again very high in our area, masks must be worn.  Hand sanitizer will be available and dancers are expected to use it.   No charge for your first three classes; $5 at the door for everyone else.    For more information about Tuesday's class, please see the News page.   There will be no class on December 13 as the Church needs the hall for other purposes.   Our next social dance will be on December 16, 7 pm at St. John's.   For more information please see the News page.
