Over the years the club has grown...

...in experience and now senior pupils are enabled to gain teaching expertise and qualifications.

All young dancers are encouraged to take United Kingdom Alliance examinations, and help and support are given as they progress through all the stages. Adults may prefer to attend lessons just to learn the dances, socialise, make new friends and keep fit.

Scottish Country dancing is enjoyed by thousands of people both in the U.K. and all over the world. It has everything to exercise the body, mind and social graces.

The techniques have to be learned, but dancing in teams of six or eight to wonderful spirit-lifting reels, jigs and strathspeys is a fun and sociable way to keep fit and healthy.
Highland dancing is mainly solo, technical and energetic, so pupils can become superfit. The standard Highland and Scottish National dances are taught. Many pupils compete successfully in competitions while others learn just for fitness and enjoyment. Dancers also have the chance to participate in special choreographed routines for displays and shows.

In the past decade club members have taken part in an episode of the TV programme 'Tikkabilla', danced in 'London Spirit' at The Sadler's Wells theatre and taken part in three 'Young Performers' Shows' at Her Majesty's Theatre. A particular highlight was dancing for the late Queen Mother at her 100th birthday celebrations. The club had also demonstrated both Scottish Country and Highland dancing at all the Harpenden Highland Gatherings.

Two ceilidhs are organised every year so that all pupils, families and friends can dance together and have fun. A charity show 'A Measure of Scotch' is held every second year and all pupils are involved.
