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 Pine Vista Resort on Stoney 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 Stoney 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

 Weekly classes have ended for the season, but will return in the fall.  Our last casual outdoor dance of the season took place on June 25.    Please return to this website in late August for updated information.

We have been offered the opportunity to dance at Lang Pioneer Village on the following Sunday afternoons, approx. 2 pm to 4 pm:   July 14, August 18, October 5, October 25 & 26, and December 7 & 8.   Some dancing would be outdoors (weather permitting) and some indoors.   For any particular date, we would need at least 8 dancers.    These are good opportunities for us to spread the word about Scottish country dancing.    Full details and a sign-up process will be sent shortly to all PSCDS members by email.

 

COBOURG:  Weekly classes have now finished for the season.  Classes will resume in the fall.  Please return to this website in late August  for more information.
