Group of the Week - Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (Falkirk branch)

Dancing is one of the most fun things we can do, but it can also be good for your health as the years go by.

It’s also a good way for young people to learn dance moves and etiquette at an early age and the Falkirk branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society is a perfect place to start off.

The group meets in community halls throughout the district and country dancing, not to be confused with Highland dancing, is social dancing for men and women, young and old.

The pastime is as energetic as you want to make it, but is a little more complex than ceilidh dancing and is taught locally by fully qualified teachers in Larbert, Grangemouth, Polmont, Laurieston and Falkirk.

It’s easy to get going as well with no specialist equipment needed

The group’s Margie Stevenson said: “We are a very friendly group and welcome anyone who has an interest in learning Scottish country dancing.

“You don’t need a partner, just a desire to exercise at a pace appropriate to your own ability and level of fitness while listening to great music and having fun.

“Everybody changes partners and you certainly won’t be left sitting on the sidelines.”
