Comox Valley Scottish Country Dancers

Two FREE introductory dance sessions will be held in the Fall of 2017.

Scottish Country Dancing

Scottish Country Dancing is social. Four couples dance together in a 'set', to Scottish reels, jigs, hornpipes and strathspeys. During the course of an evening the sets and partners change, enabling you to meet and dance with many other people.

Who?

Anybody over 16 who enjoys music and wants to dance. (Younger teenagers are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult.) You do not need a partner. Beginners are welcome before the end of November each year. Come and give it a try!

Our Christmas 2016 evening of dancing.


Evelyn, Loys, Alison & Heather at our St Andrews party Nov 27, 2016. Loys was awarded a bottle of scotch for writing the newspaper articles which attracted our new members this fall.


Here we are with travelling musicians Corinna Rose and Leah Dolgoy, who dropped in looking for some fun. (They were stranded in the Comox Valley because the wind cancelled the ferry to their next gig in Powell River.) They were on a Home Routes house concert tour.
