The Edinburgh Ballroom Dancers Association
Our main Ballroom Dancing and Latin dance venue is in Leith, Edinburgh, at the "Thomas Morton Hall", sometimes also known as the Leith Town Hall. The location is easy to find, at 28 Ferry Road, the junction of Ferry Road and Great Junction Street, however, when you get there, the hall is tucked away a wee bit behind the Library and Registrar's office on Ferry Road. Check out the details on a map here!
The hall is well decorated with a good hardwood floor, easy to dance on for both Latin Dance and Ballroom Dancing styles. Capacity is about 200, depending on the type of function in place, and the hall is well used for different types of dancing, for example there are occasional Ceilidh dances, [and at the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh]. Each Thursday evening, our friends from the Afton Dance Club also use the hall as a Ballroom Dancing and Latin Dance venue, details from their website.
You'll be very welcome to one of our sessions as a Ballroom Dancing couple or Latin Dance partnership! Costs are very reasonable. You can come along as visitors for only £3.00 each per couple, and if you decide this is for you, then we're happy to welcome you into our membership. Couples and partners in membership pay a small annual fee and then a reduced rate of £2.00 each per session attended. You can get more details by phone from Derek on 01383 822800, or just come along any Monday evening and enjoy our presentation.
