Classes 2020

The full programme of classes as detailed below runs from January to June during school term times.
Visitors from other Branches and clubs are very welcome to join us.

Due to concerns about coronavirus, Classes and Events are suspended with effect from 17/03/2020 until further notice 

Beginners class


Mondays 7.45-9.45pm

Reddings Community Centre, North Road West, Cheltenham GL51 6RF

A series of classes designed to introduce newcomers to Scottish Country dancing. The course covers the basic steps and formations and is suitable for those who are new to Scottish country dancing or who wish to refresh their knowledge after a  break from dancing.
Club Night/ General Class

Mondays  7.30-9.30pm

St Luke's Church Hall, St Luke's Place, Cheltenham, GL53 7HP

Open to all dancers post-beginner.
The aim of the Club Night is to have fun, enjoy dancing together and to pass on that enjoyment to others. We aim to achieve this by:

a) continuing to improve steps, technique and knowledge of all formations in Scottish Country Dancing.
b) becoming familiar with the dances on the branch's core list.
c) learning other dances from our own and local dance programmes.
d) building confidence in understanding a crib sheet,
following a re-cap and dancing after one walk-through.

Through doing this, we hope that ALL members will feel sufficiently confident to attend our social dances, Christmas Dance, Ball, Day School and Summer Dance - as well as other local dances.

Further classes to Follow

This is an additional class for experienced dancers who have good mobility, strong technique, a developed sense of timing and phrasing and a quick understanding of formations and patterns. The aims of the class are to dance familiar dances with improved technique and to have the opportunity to learn more complex dances.
