Valley Scottish Country Dancers

The Valley Scottish Country Dancers live and dance in the Annapolis Valley area of Nova Scotia. Regular dance classes have now ended for the summer. The fall term is running from 11 October to 29 November 2022, with a final dance night on 6 December. Winter term classes will be in March to May, with details coming later. These classes will be taught by Sue Van Horne with assistance from Rob Raeside. Classes will run from 7:30 – 9:30 pm at Bishop Hall, 10032 Hwy # 1, in Greenwich.

We hope you enjoyed getting back to weekly dancing and activities this past year, even if it was a bit of a challenge for many of us just to get used to going out anywhere, especially at night.
