Welcome to Scottish Country Dancing; we re-started for the spring dancing season on Friday 13 January 2023, continuing until Friday 17th March 2023 In addition a couple of extra Reel Clubs could be held before the Summer Ceilidh to be held on Friday 2 June 2023. Then we resume dancing for the autumn dancing season in September 2023.

Scottish Country Dancing is a fun way to keep fit and meet new people. The last spring 2023 Reel Club is the week before the PotLuck Ceilidh at the end of March 2023. We are looking forward to welcoming you 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. We will make sure there is enough ventilation and you can of course wear a mask if you prefer. 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).

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.

Weekly Classes

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 hot water 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 in or above the Atrium of the Church of Our Saviour (we have used this location since September 2021) 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 aim to run a few Reel Clubs in the spring before the Summer Ceilidh. These dates are Friday 31 March and Fridays 14 & 21 April; Friday 12 May 2023 is also probable.

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.  

Location

After nearly 10 years at the British School Diamanthorst, since September 2021 we have been based at the Atrium of the Church of Our Saviour in the centre of Den Haag, just a short distance (less that one kilometer) from Den Haag Centraal Station.

The Atrium is just behind the church, and the address is Helenastraat 8, 2595 HA, Den Haag. Click here to open the location in google maps
