Welcome to the Oxford University Scottish Dance Society. We run weekly classes during term time, where we teach Scottish country dances and ceilidh dances. The last week of each term is reserved for our End of Term Dance.

Regular classes take place on Tuesday during term time from 7.30pm to 9.45pm at Wesley Memorial Church. Beginners are always welcome on Tuesday. Come along, meet new people, and have fun doing it. You learn easy ceilidh dances, but also more difficult strathspeys, jigs and reels. We also run advanced classes on Wednesday at Jericho Community Centre. For our term card click here.

Please note the Freshers' Ceilidh and first two Tuesday (beginner) classes of term (12th, 19th, 26th October) will be held at the Catholic Chaplaincy on St Aldates due to renovation work as Wesley Memorial.

We will resume dancing at Wesley Memorial Hall in November.

Wednesday classes will continue to be held at Jericho Community Centre this term.
