Harrogate Strathspey and Reel Club

Have you ever tried Scottish Dancing? Why not come along to The Harrogate Strathspey and Reel Club and give it a try?

Whether you are a complete beginner or an accomplished dancer you will be made most welcome. Dress is informal, with soft shoes or plimsolls. No need to come with a partner - everyone dances with everyone else during the evening and that is part of the fun.

There is a break for refreshments and a chat. Our teachers are very good and have plenty of patience.

We meet at St. Luke’s Parish Centre, Franklin Square (off King’s Road) Harrogate HG1 5EL each Monday evening from 7:30 - 9.45pm.

The cost is £3-50 per evening, but your first evening is free. Either just turn up or ring Norma or Pat for more details.

The next season starts on Monday, 9th September 2013 Hope to see you there!
