St. Andrew's Dinner and Dance

In November of each year, Scots around the world pay tribute to St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. (The official day of recognition in Scotland is November 30th.) In keeping with this tradition, The Scottish Society of Dallas sponsors a formal dinner and dance which is generally held the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The evening begins with a reception and cocktail hour. Post dinner entertainment features live pipe band music provided by the North Texas Caledonian Pipes & Drums and demonstrations of Highland dancing by Fiona Alpaugh's, Dallas Highland Dancers. The evening concludes with dancing (a variety of music is provided for all ages) including an opportunity for our guests to try their hand at a number of traditional, Scottish Country Dances!

Location specifics and additional information for the next dance (November 2017) will be posted here by late May, 2017. So...dust off your dancing shoes and make plans to join us next November.
