Falkirk District Council coat of arms

Five Scottish country dance classes are held throughout the week, in and around Falkirk; Laurieston, Polmont, Larbert & Grangemouth. Read a SCD overview with videos.

Four country dances are held between September and May, including the hugely popular Crieff Weekend of dancing, which is held every year in January at the Crieff Hydro Hotel, attracting dancers from all over the United Kingdom.

A ceilidh dance is held weekly in Falkirk, where dancers are introduced to a mix of traditional ceilidh and popular social dances.

Traditional Scottish dancing is a great way of getting fit, making friends, and above all having FUN!! No specialist equipment is required. Although soft soled dancing pumps are ideal — they are by no means essential — any light, soft soled shoe/trainer will do to get started. Clothes are best when loose fitting for ease of movement — trousers or kilts for men and skirts, trousers or light dresses for women.

Reels and Wheels CD

As the traditional Scottish music we dance to is so enjoyable, the Falkirk Branch with the esteemed Gordon Shand Band, has produced the Reels and Wheels CD for all to buy.

Interested in playing music for Scottish country dancing? We currently have funding available for musician's tuition.

If you're interested in giving it a try, or have danced before and would like to get involved again, contact the committee, who will help you get started with a free trial at one of the classes.
