Thank you Angus, I have been promoting Ballroom Dance in Scotland for a long time now, holding events etc. I thought this may be a good opportunity to draw dancers attention to my ( Kim’s free advice service) which could help beginner and advanced Teachers and Dancers when they are in need of technical advice.

  7. I think my Father would enjoy a tea dance. He lives in Dundee, but unfortunately he does not have a partner to go with. Are there people go to the dances on their own or are they all couples?

    Can you please tell me more about any of options you have for me.

    Many thanks,

    • I, thanks for the query. I generally list social dances that are in the local area. I’ not too clear on what sources of learning dance are available to you at intermediate level. Dundee College used to run dance classes, but generally in Tayside anyway, teaching classes are pretty much non-existent at this time. If anyone out there knows otherwise feel free to post the update here. Thanks

  9. Hi, my father is 80 on sat 18th June and I wanted to take him and my mother (a few others too) to a tea dance that day. They were great dancers in their day and still love to have a dance. Any suggestions on where to go – preferably that day? I don’t live in Dundee myself so would be very grateful for any help.

  10. Hi myself and my partner are getting married and we would like to learn how to dance properly for our wedding. We are beginners and would love some advice on what classes to go to? Perhaps the Monday evening ones?

  11. As new converts to the world of ballroom dancing its nice to see the variety of local places listed on your website where we can go and improve our dancing. However its a pity that many of the dates clash.
    We dance regularly with George and Sheila in Balmullo and are particularly enjoying their Monday night tea dances with their mix of social dancing and sequence lessons. We have learned some older favourites but also brand new dances straight off the press and would recommend it to anyone looking to learn sequence or simply just to have fun revisiting the well known dances.

  12. Hi, I,ve been looking for dancers/instructors to co-ordinate a tea dance in the function suite of a local pub in dundee. I was thinking of an afternoon mid-week. If anyone is free for this kind of event I would love to talk to you. Many thanks. Lisa.

  13. Hi, just found your website “ballroom-dancing-diary” and wondered if you have seen mine. It is a list of dance venues, primarily in and around Glasgow, but with some venues (such as yours above) throughout Scotland. May I include a link to your site? Perhaps you would like to put in a link to mine.
    Best regards
    Pete

    Angus Replies: Absolutely, anything that promotes the activity. Will update the site soon. Best Regards

  14. Thanks very much for your web site , it as now introduced us to Sequence dancing at the british legion Arbroath and the lovely friendly people the teachers Jack & Jean are very helpful and its fun . which puts back what was missing in our lives. We also go to Ceroc which is unbelievable far far better than any medal class

    ANGUS REPLIED ->
    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I’m really pleased it has been useful for you.
    So glad you too are enjoying your dancing and yes the folks at Arbroath are very friendly. We have only gone a couple of times there but will be going back once the light nights come in.
    When you see some new faces you will have to introduce yourself.
    Thanks again for your comment.
