RSCDS Lyon Branch

Weekly Scottish Country Dance classes 2021-22

A friendly way to start the weekend! Come as you are, no need for a partner. Scottish Country Dance ranges from very easy dances to mind-challenging ones. The two hours start off with all-level teaching (aimed primarily at beginners), then move on to intermediate and advanced.

Teaching is in French, but every formation is walked through even if you don’t speak French - and many in the group will be happy to speak English.

Every Friday at 7pm from 10th September to 24th June.
