Come and enjoy Scottish country dancing for fun, fitness and friendship


The Pretoria Scottish Country Dance Club was formed on 6 July 1972 by Ina Bergh, Cooks Dauth and Hetty Nash. The club became a branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society in 1982. We currently have about 20 members, ranging from advanced dancers to some very enthusiastic beginners.


We dance every Thursday evening, except before Good Friday and during the Christmas - New Year period. Classes are held in St Columba’s Presbyterian Church hall, Hilda Street, Hatfield, Pretoria, South Africa, at the following times:

Class Time Teacher
General teaching 20:00-20:45 Wouter Joubert
Tea 20:45-21:00
Social dancing 21:00-22:00

In 2018 we dance until Thursday 6 December, and reopen on Thursday 10 January 2019.


Your first evening is free. The annual membership fee for 2018 is R460, which includes full RSCDS membership. The fee per evening is R10.


We have an active demonstration team who are pleased to perform at social functions, be it formal dinners, wedding receptions or outdoor events – and we'll even get the audience to join in with some dances if you like. Contact us for more information.
