We dance every Thursday at 8:15pm. Most weeks our teacher, John Gibson, offers step and formation practice at 7:30pm prior to the main class. Beginners are encouraged to attend but this is not compulsory.

Weeks when step and formation practice will not be held will be indicated on our social media pages and on our News & Events page.

We dance in the Dún Laoghaire Presbyterian Church Hall in York Road. There’s ample free parking onsite and the 46A bus stops directly outside the church gates. The DL Dart station is a 15-20 minute walk away.


Your first two classes are free! After that it’s €5 per class. Annual membership is also an option for those who may wish to pay yearly. There is zero financial commitment and you’re not required to pay for a bulk number of classes. You can attend weekly or as often as you like. You will only pay €5 for each class you attend. 

Wear clothes that are comfortable to move in and soft shoes with a non-slip sole (such as light runners). Many dancers wear ballet pumps, which can be purchased from dance shops. We recommend you try them on before buying them rather than buying online. It goes without saying that you do not have to wear a kilt…unless you want to!

Just yourself! You might want to bring a bottle of water. Midway through the evening we have a tea/coffee break and we provide cake or biscuits to nibble on (most weeks baked goods are kindly provided by Judy Barnes, our fiddle player).
