July 2021 Branch Updates 

We are very pleased to announce that the Branch AGM took place on 7 July 2021, the first general meeting since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The committee is now in the process of exploring a return to dance classes in the Belfast area in mid/late September.  This will be dependent on the willingness of dancers/availability of halls, and we will advise members and update the website when more detailed information is available.

Thank you to those members who have continued to support the Branch during this difficult time.

If you are interested in visiting a class to try out Scottish country dancing, (SCD)  please do come along.

You can be assured of a warm welcome at any of our classes or events whether you are new to SCD or an experienced dancer.

Teachers will advise and will choose dances to suit beginners as well as those for experienced dancers, while also teaching the steps and formations that are used in Scottish country dance. Classes suit  all levels of experience and for beginners/less experienced dancers we have additional  monthly classes aimed at learning the basic skills and dance formations to enable less experienced folk to participate in and enjoy the weekly classes even more.

Classes run throughout the year from September to April and there are various other events across the entire year – see dates, venues and contact information for classes on Classes page.
