The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, whose patron is H.M, The Queen, is a worldwide organisation that exists to promote and develop Scottish country dancing and music. The London Branch was the first to be formed outside Scotland and runs dance classes to suit all levels of experience, including young people. In addition it holds an annual day of music/dance giving dancers and musicians the opportunity to develop skills.
The Branch also holds dances throughout the year including Ceilidh dances. The first of these, a St. Andrew’s Night Ceilidh, will take place on Saturday 18 November 2017 with a Burns’ Night Ceilidh, including haggis supper, taking place on Saturday 13 January 2018.
In the coming months the Branch will be holding three taster classes for children/families to be held at different central London venues.
