Our regular Friday evening Reel Club (weekly club night dancing classes) meets most weeks in the spring and the autumn. As ever, new faces are welcome, and with the spring dance season being extended with a few additional Reel Club evenings – keep in touch. Please contact us via the contact form if you wish to attend one of our Reel Clubs on Friday evenings, or to enquire about an event (Ball or Ceilidh). After 10 years we moved from our old home at the British School on Diamanthorst and from September 2021 have been meeting for the past year and a half in the Atrium of the Church of Our Saviour on Helenastraat 8.
Reel Club – St Andrew’s Society of the Netherlands (opens in a new tab)
The last dance we held before the Corona pandemic was our Burns’ Night Ceilidh dance on Friday 24th January 2020 in Leidschenveen – a popular dance with a great turnout. We re-opened on Friday 10th September 2021 with a small Opening Night Ceilidh for members and their friends. Unfortunately we had to cancel November 2021’s Charity Ball, and also the Burns’ Night Ceilidh due to have been on Friday 21st January 2022. However we held a Reel Club that evening, and continued to do so until Fri 18 March 2022. We held our PotLuck Ceilidh on Friday 25th March 2022, followed by a couple of additional Reel Clubs before our Summer Ceilidh which was held on Saturday 11th June 2022. In November we held our StA Charity Ball near the end of the month; those present raised €1510 for the charity beneficiary. So with the 27 January 2023 Burn’s Night Ceilidh we have successfully completed one annual cycle of dances.
Regardless of any current high/low level of Corona transmission it is in all our interests for members and guests to self-test shortly before attending Reel Club or an event (Ceilidh or Ball).
