Current Activities

        Classes are held for an approximate 33-week season, Tuesday evenings from September to May. Prospective dancers are welcomed with a Newcomers' Dance to start the year and both Beginner and Experienced classes join for a combined warm-up and a simple dance before their individual classes. Monthly social dances on Friday evenings are popular, as are occasional "Step Above" classes featuring unusual dances or formations and/or technique improvement.

        The annual potluck Christmas party and traditional Burns' Supper (catered) are well attended. May 2014 will mark the 30th annual Stony Lake Weekend, Peterborough's dance workshop and ball with live music by Fred Moyes. This event attracts dancers from a wide area of Ontario and the eastern United States.

        PSCDS dancers participate regularly in numerous local demonstrations for major civic events. They have participated in the annual Dragon Boat Races, the opening of the City's Millennium Park (riverfront site of PSCDS summer dancing in June and July), and the municipal observance of the Queen's Golden Jubilee, as well as entertaining residents of Peterborough's many retirement communities, among others.
