Beginners’ Classes

Join us at dancing in 2020

Scottish Country Dancing is a fun way to get fit and make new friends – all with toe-tapping Celtic music!

We welcome you to our Beginner’s Classes on 3, 10, 17 and 24 February, 7.30pm on Monday nights at Johnsonville Bowling Club, 34 Frankmoore Avenue (opposite Phillip Street), Johnsonville, Wellington.

Our classes suit all ages from teenagers and upwards.

First Class: Monday, 3 February

Doors open at 7.15pm. Come a little early the first night to register and be ready to dance at 7.30pm.

Our tutor Rod Downey will introduce the steps over the four weeks and you’ll be up and dancing during the first evening.

  • This is social dancing and we all dance together and help each other.
  • No partner is needed – come by yourself or with a friend
  • Wear soft shoes and light comfortable clothing
  • Just $5 for each class, or $15 for all four!
