Spring Fling 2020

Two cities, one Scottish country dance festival

Spring Fling is a weekend of dance, organised by young people, for young people. Each year the event is held in a different location and 2020 is extra special, with two host cities; Saint Petersburg in Russia and Toronto in Canada. Spring Fling is open to dancers aged 12-35 and all those attending can look forward to a fantastic weekend of dancing, socialising and making friends.

Both events will have a joint Fringe programme of activities for people aged 35+ over the respective weekend. Come and join the party!

Booking is done through the official Spring Fling 2020 website.
