Welcome back to Scottish Country Dancing!!!
Scottish country dancing is a fun way to keep fit and meet new people. We re-started in September. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the dancing and we trust that you are all fully vaccinated.
We aim to keep everyone as safe as possible whilst enjoying our time dancing. This means, that Margaret will lead us through dances without the necessity of holding hands and without having to do any progressions. There will be enough gels available in case you do touch hands accidentally. We will make sure there is enough ventilation and you can of course wear a mask if you prefer.
It is not necessary to bring a partner and we regularly change partners during the evening so you get to meet new people and dance with more or less experienced members. The classes are taught in English and each dance is fully explained by our dancing teacher Margaret Lambourne.
The Reel Club is the name for our Scottish dancing class, also called our club night by some. We start at 8pm and finish at 10pm on Friday evenings. We stop for a break midway through – there is a kettle if you would like to make a cuppa! Please wear comfy clothes – it can get quite warm whilst dancing – and wear non-marking shoes.
We will have Reel Club at our new location in the Atrium of the Church of Our saviour on most Fridays from September until May. The exact dates of Reel Club depends on school term dates, but are typically September to November and then January to March. We also run Reel Club in May when there is sufficient interest.
Reel Club is included in our full membership, for more information about membership costs please click here. We are always happy to welcome potential new members and the first 2 sessions are free. If you would like to come along to a class – please contact Marion so we know to expect you.
Please note that we no longer have the use of the British School Diamonthorst, which was our “home” for nearly 10 years. From September 2021 we will be based at the Church of our Savour in the centre of Den Haag just a short distance (less that one kilometer) from Den Haag Centraal Station.
The Church of Our Saviour is near the centre of Den Haag on the corner of Bezuidenhoutseweg and Koningin Marialaan; its Atrium that our club will use is behind the church on the corner of Koningin Marialaan and Helenastraat.
