Ho-Ho-Kus Class Ho-Ho-Kus Beginners Class


Said his father to famous Scot, William Wallace (in “Braveheart”), ‘Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it.’ And follow it you will, after taking this Scottish Country Dancing class for beginners.

You will learn the five common steps and some simple formations that are used in many Scottish Country Dances. No special clothes or shoes are needed for class. Any soft-soled, flat shoe and comfortable clothing is fine. This is social dancing and it's customary to change partners for each dance, so although couples are welcome you'll dance with everyone and coming without a partner is no problem.

Taught by an instructor certified by the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, the class will be one-hour long, plus an extra fifteen minutes dedicated to trying out new steps with a warm-up and simple dance. Expect lively music and a lot of fun! Come dance wi’ us! We look forward to seeing you there!
