The Nova Scotia Scottish dance groups have weekly classes from the Fall through the Spring.
The Valley Scottish County dancers have advanced classes on the last Saturday of each month, except, perhaps, in the summer.
There are approximately 6 Branch socials held monthly on Sunday afternoons from September to March. We have a workshop each October, with beginners and intermediate/advanced classes. Each year, usually in May, we have a Branch-wide Tea Dance in Truro.

Check our website for details and contact information for the separate dance groups.

In 2017 we were excited to publish the booklet Spark of Water of locally devised dances, with a companion CD by Keith Smith and Muriel Johnstone.
More information and order details can be found on our website.
