About the club
We are a busy and lively club dedicated to the promotion, learning and enjoyment of Scottish Country Dancing. The club is well established, and has a membership of around 60 members. We can offer you an entertaining evening, with a friendly group of people. We welcome new members, and visitors.
We meet on Monday evenings, 8pm to 10.15pm, from September to June
at the Onslow Village Hall
Wilderness Road, Guildford, GU2 7QR
During the main dancing season, club evenings are led by our four resident MCs. During May and June, members have the opportunity to lead evenings. We celebrate Burns Night, we hold a Spring Dance with live music in May, and have the occasional club night with live music.
Dances are walked through beforehand. There is no need to bring a partner, as we all take turns at dancing with each other. You do not have to be Scottish, and there is no need to wear Scottish apparel, but soft shoes or trainers are recommended - in due course you may wish to buy some purpose-made soft dancing shoes.
Membership is open to all adults with an interest in Scottish Country Dancing.

If you are a beginner or less-experienced dancer, we would encourage you to consider attending an appropriate class, such as one of those offered by the local Branch. Also, several local U3A groups have Scottish Country Dancing classes - visit your local U3A websites for more information.
Whatever your ability, you may wish to further improve your dancing skills by attending a class or maybe a Day School, as this can increase your understanding and enjoyment of the dancing. Adult classes can be started at age 16. A children's class is run by St John's Scottish Country Dancing Club, near Wokingham - email us for more information.
