If you want FUN, FITNESS, FRIENDSHIP, come ‘Dance Scottish’ with us

We started in Deep Cove, but we have moved west to Highlands United Church, 3255 Edgemont Blvd, North Vancouver BC V7R 2P1, in Edgemont Village. The gym is accessed from the south side, underneath the main building.

2023/24 classes commence Monday September 18 with ‘Bring a Friend night’, then continue on Mondays as a General Class.  Beginners are asked to join the Tuesday class. We welcome dancers who are fully vaccinated (3 or 4 doses), are in a healthy condition, and have had no recent contact with someone with Covid. We plan to have gym doors open for ventilation, and will provide hand sanitizers for use between dances.

General Class (some experience required) meets Mondays 7 to 9 pm with teachers Kay Sutherland and Alison Moen at Highlands Church

Beginners Class ‘LONSDALE DANCE SCOTTISH’ (a joint venture with Gleneagles Club of West Vancouver)
meets Tuesdays 7 to 9 pm with teacher 
Alison Moen
at Silver Harbour Centre, 144 22nd St East, North Vancouver.  Join anytime – drop-in fee $15.

Deep Cove Fall Dance will be on November 26  2023 at Highlands United Church         Details and Dance notes here

Our emphasis is to have fun, exercise in an enjoyable way, socialize with others and forget all our problems. We also provide an outlet for all those who love to dance but don’t have a willing partner. We change partners constantly, so you get to know everyone. To dance with our group you do not need a partner, you do not need a kilt or to be Scottish. However you do need some soft comfortable shoes. (Sneakers are OK for Beginners.) You also need to wear cool clothing and bring your smiles.

You will find our group most welcoming and you can attend the first class for free. After a few classes you may want to attend the many dances which are held around the area from September to May. You can also dance during the summer in Stanley Park. We hold a yearly dance, but there are many dances to go to throughout the year in the lower mainland, if you wish to do so. Scottish country dancing is a very social activity. We look forward to meeting you.

Dorothy Hargreaves started the club in Deep Cove in 1986. She continues to be active in the Club and planned our 30th Anniversary celebrations in 2016.

To mark the occasion, the members of the Deep Cove SCD Club published a book of dances devised by our founding teacher. Dorothy has created jigs, reels and strathspeys to interest everyone from beginners to advanced.  The book is now available for purchase. Cost is $12. Contact Mary Ann McDevitt at mamcdevitt@shaw.ca or 604.929.2944.
