The Hong Kong Highlanders Reel Club
Established in 1947, The Reel Club has been affiliated with the Hong Kong Highlanders since 1997. It was originally set up by the then minister of Union Church with the intention of providing British servicemen with wholesome entertainment and keeping them away from less salubrious areas of Hong Kong (!).
Seventy years later, it is still providing people with wholesome entertainment and the chance to meet friends and dance on a regular basis. Individual members may come and go, but the regular Monday night meetings keep on going.
The Reel Club is an affiliate member of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, a global organisation dedicated to promoting Scottish Country Dance.
What: Starts with easier dances and progresses onto more challenging dances. All dances are walked through in advance.
