What we do
We meet every Wednesday evening between
September and June to socialise and dance Scottish Country
We usually dance in Church House, South
Street, Bridport, West Dorset (see
Ann Prior, our teacher, sometimes takes
a class for learners from 6.30 p.m. to 7.25 p.m.
From 7.30p.m. to 10.00 p.m. (with a coffee-break
at 8.30) we dance - with Ann and various others guiding us through familar dances
or teaching us new dances.
Every first Wednesday in the month, 7.30-10.00,
we have a Social Dance (with cakes!) at Salwayash Village Hall (2½ miles
north of Bridport - see
Every so often groups of us go to neighbouring
SCD groups' social dances or even to Day Schools or Week-end Schools or even
the official RSCDS weeks at St Andrews in Scotland.
We also have a particular relationship
with a French group of dancers at St-Quay-Perros in Brittany, the Scots Bonnets
- each year we do an 'exchange' - either they come to us for a week-end of hospitality
and dancing or we go to them.
Also we have a WALK & TALK GROUP - A very informal social
walking group for members of Bridport Scottish Dancers and their "other
halves" - talk to Peter or Gill Wingfield for more information.
We have a lot of friendly fun!
