There is not a standard fee for qualified teachers. Most terms are for 10 weeks and depend on the teacher. Classes are held once or twice a week and most new pupils are part of a group. Many of the teachers have a circular setting out the fees, times of classes, group or private lessons and venue, and require from the parents such details as parents' contact number. There are now a number of teachers who are full-time dancing teachers and others who combine teaching with their work and family commitments.
Learning dancing can be great fun and is also an excellent way for parents and all members of the family to meet others. It does not matter if there is not a family Scottish background - just take the opportunity to learn to dance and enjoy the sound of bagpipes. Music is such an integral part of highland and national dancing.
