Nanaimo Tea Dance 2017


Scottish Country Dancing is a great way for people of all ages to keep active and socialize at the same time.

Its health benefits are widely recognized, especially for bone health and prevention of injuries

New dancers are always welcome. You don't need a partner or any previous experience. Just wear soft-soled shoes and loose comfortable clothing.

Our new season starts with an Open House, an introduction especially for beginners, on Thursday Sept 14, 7:30 pm at Pleasant Valley Hall Social Centre, 6100 Doumont Rd., Nanaimo.

In the meantime, this video, thanks to the UK NHS and the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, will give you a good idea of what to expect in a class.
