Who We Are

We are a group of dancers in the Yeovil, South Somerset and Dorset area, who meet weekly (since 1982) and enjoy Scottish Country Dancing.

Dancing is an excellent exercise, and  it always cheers you up- the dances are varied, and learning them exercises the brain as well as the body- the covid crisis proved to all of us the value of exercising,  meeting and interacting with people who share the sheer JOY of dancing.

We welcome new beginners, when you can come along and give it a try and your first two visits are FREE. You don't need a partner, Scottish dancing is very sociable. Just wear soft shoes, please. We also welcome local dancers from other clubs and  those on holiday in  the area.

"Happiness is Scottish Country dancing"  is so true
