Want to try something new?

Are you looking for a new activity – or to come back to something that you maybe did a few years ago – then Scottish country dancing may be just the thing!

Reading St Andrew’s Scottish Dancing Society runs classes on a Tuesday evening which are suitable for people who have never done any Scottish country dancing. It is fun and sociable. You do not need a partner, but of course are welcome to bring one!

Come and try it – your first class is free! Classes will restart on 3 September 2019.

Classes are held from 8.00pm till 10pm in the lower hall of St Andrews United Reformed Church, Reading, Berkshire, UK – RG1 5BD  – (enter from the car park in Craven Road at the door furthest from the road).

Click here for the Beginners class page where cribs (brief instructions) for the dances likely to be done during each month are posted.

Reading St Andrew’s SDS at 70!

We’re looking forward to celebrating the 70th anniversary of Reading St Andrew’s Scottish Dancing Society – formed in September 1949. We would be pleased if members and former members could join us for afternoon tea on 31 August 2019. The anniversary celebrations will continue at the Annual Ball on Saturday 1 February and at the Spring Dance and Ceilidh on 25 April 2020. Please make a note of these dates in your diary – note that the ceilidh date has changed.

On 31 August we plan to have tea and biscuits at 2.15pm, with time to chat and to do some easy dancing. There will be a finger buffet at 4.45pm and we expect to finish around 5.45pm. If you have any photographs or other memorabilia we can display on the day, please send it in advance.

As we need to have some idea of the numbers likely to attend to arrange the catering please email sascdo1@gmail.com as soon as possible. Many thanks.
