8-week BEGINNER Scottish dance class at the Athens Community Center

July 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Do you want to spend two hours a week having FUN? How about sliding in exercise without noticing it? Do you want to make friends and become part of a nurturing community? Or figure out puzzles that date back beyond the founding of our nation? Then you won’t want to miss the last beginner Scottish dance series of 2024!

This eight-week class meets every Sunday at the Athens Community Center between July 14 and September 1. Each week we’ll be building on the previous week’s session, so drop-ins aren’t possible. (However, if you need to miss a single class, you’ll be fine.)
Start at the very beginning then level up to become a strong intermediate dancer. We’ll learn jigs, reels, and strathspeys and students will become proficient at all the basic figures plus reels of three, quick-time poussette, and two-couple allemandes. For folks who have taken this class before — we’ll learn lots of new dances, so you won’t be bored!
Who is this for: You! This class will be perfect if you’ve never danced before, if you’re a pro with patience, or for anyone in the middle. No partner needed. All folks 18+ are welcome. If you can walk briskly, you can dance!
Cost: $45
