We normally meet every Wednesday from early September to late May at
Church House, South Street, Bridport, except for the first Wednesday of
each month when we are at Salway Ash village hall.
We start dancing at 7:30 p.m. Dancers are requested
to arrive at 7:15 in time to get suitably shod and 'ready for off' at
Established members are always happy to help newer dancers with easier
dances until the tea/coffee break.
After 9:00 p.m. the programme includes new or more challenging dances
with our more experienced dancers in mind.
9:45 we finish dancing , clear up and go home!
When we meet at Salway Ash each month, the evening is a more social
occasion with dances chosen from those danced during the preceding month
- and there are cakes!
We have a Christmas party in December, and an "end of season"
party at the end of May / beginning of June.
AND - In December every year we dance all Wednesdays in Salway Ash (Christmas
shopping in Bridport - no parking!)
In the summer we have social evenings on the last Wednesdays of June,
July and August with popular guest callers - We welcome guest dancers
from other local clubs.
Other Scottish country dancing groups in the area run balls and social
dances during the year which many of our dancers support.
Occasionally we have a special dance with live music.
Our club is managed by a committee of seven, elected by club members at
the AGM in April/May each year.
The teaching of dancing and the dance programmes are the responsibility
of a sub-committee.
We have a Constitution and Rules which are available on request.
