Have a fling at Scottish dancing

Sottish dancing is a fun activity

After more than a year of being stuck at home during the pandemic, Scottish country dancers in Gosford have been getting back on the dance floor.

And they’re looking for locals who want to try out a new activity.

Spokesperson for the Gosford Group of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, Sue McKenzie, said Scottish country dancing is a wonderful way for people of all ages and backgrounds to stay fit while having a good time and mixing socially.

“It’s great for people’s physical and mental health, especially after long periods of isolation and a restricted social life,” she said.

“If you have already experienced Scottish dances at a wedding or a ceilidh, you’ll know the feeling of exhilaration when dancing to upbeat, traditional Scottish music.

“Maybe you just fancy the idea of trying something new that will help your wellbeing as well as enable you to meet new people.

“Whatever the reason, the Gosford Group of Scottish Country Dancers will make sure that new dancers are made to feel very welcome.”

Dancers do not need to have a partner or any prior experience and no special clothes or footwear is required.

The Gosford Group of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society holds classes each Wednesday between 7pm and 9pm at Wyoming Church of Christ Hall.

The cost is $5 a class with the first class free.
