UPDATE CORONAVIRUS 15 MARCH 2020: Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation – reel club is cancelled until after the Easter break. Further information to follow soon.
Scottish country dancing is a fun way to keep fit and meet new people. 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 have Reel Club at the British School Diamanthorst 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 the British School Diamonthorst, which has been our venue since January 2011, now has its entrance at what was previously the rear of the building at Saffierhorst 117, 2592 GK Den Haag. The entrance gate to use is that for “PARENTS & VISITORS.”
The school is well serviced by public transport – bus 24 goes along Diamanthorst to Mariahoeve station, tram 6 is one main street (Het Kleine Loo) to the south, and bus 43 from Leiden via Wassenaar goes along Bezuidenhoutseweg to Den Haag Centraal (Hofzichtlaan stop).
