Live music night at Johnsonville Scottish Country Dance Club

Scottish country dancing is a fun way to exercise and make new friends, with the bonus of toe-tapping Celtic music. Everyone is welcome at Johnsonville Scottish Country Dance Club’s beginner classes in February. We are a friendly bunch of all ages and backgrounds, who meet at 7.30pm on Monday nights at Johnsonville School Hall for dance, music and a good laugh together. Our Kiwi dancers are joined by Scottish country dancing enthusiasts from Scotland,

China, England, Fiji, Japan, and Malaysia. Qualified dance tutor Rod Downey will introduce the steps over 4 weeks of beginner classes, and you’ll be up and dancing from day one. Come alone or with a friend - this is social dancing, we all dance together and help one other. All you need are soft shoes, comfortable clothing, and a few weeks to find out if it’s for you. For more information, visit or contact Elaine 027 272 5637 / Rod or Kristin 478 4948.
