Do you want to keep fit and active but want something more than that? An enjoyable evening out and the opportunity to make new friends.
That’s exactly what Scottish country dancing offers. So, forget any preconceived ideas you might have and give it a try. The enjoyment and friendship you will experience for yourself, when you join Scottish country dance classes run by RSCDS Oban and Lorn Branch.
RSCDS Oban and Lorn Branch run regular classes from September to Easter. Beginners are made very welcome. All you need are soft shoes, a love to dance and we’ll find you a different partner for each dance. Our RSCDS qualified Scottish country dance teacher, Sue Porter, will soon have you confidently joining in this very sociable way to keep fit. Along with the obvious physical benefits of dancing, it has even been proven to help stave off dementia.
As for proof of the fitness benefits, then look no further than the recent study carried out by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. To quote the study ‘Not only is country dancing enjoyable and sociable but there also appears to be clear evidence that it’s an effective recreational exercise for particular types of fitness in later life.’
