No partner necessary for this traditional dance

Vernon Scottish Country Dancers invite new dancers to try out this traditional dance

You don’t have to be a Scot to find your foot tapping to the irresistible rhythms of the stirring reels and lilting strathspeys. You can experience the unique thrill of dancing your very first reel simply by coming to the Vernon Scottish Country Dancers (VSCD) OPEN HOUSE and free introductory class Sept. 12 at Knox Presbyterian Church Hall from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

VSCD love to introduce newcomers to the joys of Scottish Country Dancing. Dress casual, wear soft-soled shoes and come and see what it is all about. (No partner necessary). Before you know it, you will be dancing!

Scottish Country Dancing is an ancient traditional dance that has been an important part of Scottish social gatherings for centuries. These days classes can be found in almost every city and members of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society can be found dancing in countries around the world.

The Vernon Scottish Country Dance Club has been in operation for more than 20 years. The mission of the club is to promote Scottish Country Dancing in accordance with the rules of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society based in Edinburgh, Scotland of which they are members.

Dancing promotes pleasant social interaction and aerobic activity, both of which are important for physical and mental health. Once a month VSCD have a ceilidh at which they share food and social time at the end of an evening that focuses on dancing rather than learning or instruction. You can find out more about Scottish Country Dancing under “The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society” on YouTube.
