Our regular Friday evening classes in The Hague restarted in September 2019 and will take place each Friday until Friday 22nd November 2019. The following weekend is our Charity Ball, and the Reel Club will restart for the New Year on Friday 10th January 2020.
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. It is held on most Fridays from September until May* at the British School Diamanthorst. We start at 8pm and finish at 10pm. 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.
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.
*The exact dates of Reel Club depends on school term dates but are typically September to November and January to March. We also run Reel Club in May when there is sufficient interest.
Please note that the British School Diamonthorst, 2592 GK Den Haag, which has been our venue since January 2011, now has a new entrance at what was previously the rear of the building at Saffierhorst 117. The new gate indicates that it is the entrance 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).
