Summer Dancing

The dancing classes are over for the Summer, but it doesn't mean that we don't dance in the Summer at all!

Every Tuesday from 8 in the evening and till dusk, if the weather is good, we dance in the Gorky Park. We dance simple dances, so anyone can join us, and we dance complex ones, interesting for experienced dancers. Our dances are free of charge! Come and join us!

We dance either at the entrance to Pushkin Bridge, or, if there is possibility of a rain, under the bridge. Walking time from Shabolovskaya metro station is about 10 minutes. Our dancing spots are marked on the map. Simply follow the sounds of Scottish music to find us!
