Retford and District Scottish Country Dance Society

by | 4 September 2022 | Dancing, Hobbies, Retford

The Retford and District Scottish Country Dance Society aims to promote Scottish Country Dancing throughout the world. You don’t have to be Scottish to be involved; it is an exciting form of dance with widespread appeal, enjoyed across the world by people of all ages, abilities and all levels of fitness.

Not danced before? Don’t worry, you don’t need to have experience and you don’t have to bring a partner; all that’s needed is enthusiasm and comfortable shoes. Everyone moves around and you will find yourself dancing with many different partners. So, it’s a great way to make new friends and boost your social life.

Scottish Country Dancing has lots of added benefits. It can improve confidence and self-esteem and is acknowledged for increasing fitness and stamina. One hour’s dancing can burn up to 300 calories, as well as reduce stress, increase energy and improve co-ordination and memory.

This is a small, friendly group to which all are invited, from newcomers to experienced dancers. The Retford branch meets on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Westhill Community Centre, Cheyne Walk, Ordsall, Retford DN22 7GA.

After the summer break the dancers start again on 6th September. Go along and give it a try; your first night is free, thereafter £5.00 per session.
