Pinewoods Sessions 2018

Scottish Session I: July 6-9, 2018
Scottish Session II: July 9-14, 2018

Join us in 2018 in the woods of Plymouth for Scottish dancing beneath the tall pines. You'll enjoy dance and music classes during the day and a dance party every night, plus after-parties, auctions, ceilidhs (known to the outside world as talent shows), and more!

This year's theme: SPELLBOUND!! Our theme this year is magic. Witches, wizards, warlocks, magic potions, magic wands, twitching noses, all of it is fair game. Start getting your costumes ready and remember to APPLY!!
