Summer School 2022

Our flagship Scottish country dance event

Summer School traditionally takes place in St Andrews each year and attracts dancers from all over the world.

Whilst our traditional Summer School event in St Andrews was not able to go ahead in 2021, we were able to bring a little of that magic direct to you via the internet instead.

Over the course of three evenings, you were invited to join us for a typical day at Summer School in St Andrews... all from the comfort of your own home!

Each session included the opportunity to:

  • attend a Scottish country dance class
  • enjoy watching the taught dance - look out for favourite locations in St Andrews!
  • attend a Step dance class
  • discover more insights into Summer School through interviews with some well known faces
  • get into the Summer School atmosphere with a trip down memory lane to previous Younger Hall evening dances - look out for yourself or your friends!
  • join the 'party room' at St Andrews as various musicians meet up for a musical stramash!

We hope you enjoyed Virtual Summer School in 2021 and we look forward to seeing many of you in person on the various dance floors at St Andrews in 2022.
