The BBC is starting a Scottish Country Dancing Group.

For those who have not tried or seen Scottish Country Dancing in action, it is highly sociable and the dances are generally energetic.

You start with a partner and you will know that you have grasped the steps when you at least finish with the same partner! It is dance for all ages and is taught in many schools in Scotland.


The group will meet once a month from October 2017 to March 2018 on a Thursday evening from 7.0 pm to 9.30 pm in Labarde.

The dates are:

  • Thursday 5th October 2017
  • Thursday 9th November 2017
  • Thursday 7th December 2017
  • Thursday 11th January 2018
  • Thursday 8th February 2018
  • Thursday 8th March 2018


The group will practice in Labarde and the Mairie de Labarde have kindly agreed to make available a room free of charge for the BBC to use.

Labarde is in the Medoc roughly 30 minutes north from the centre of Bordeaux by car. For those without transport there is the possibility of a tram to Blanquefort from where a pickup can be arranged.

How much?

We have a professional animatrice in the person of Marilyn Simon.

To cover teaching costs there will be a charge of 15€ for three sessions payable in advance to the BBC by 1st October to cover the October, November and December sessions in 2017.

A second payment of 15 € for three sessions payable in advance to the BBC by 1st January 2018 to cover the January, February and March sessions.
