The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, whose patron is Her Majesty 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 of Scotland nearly 90 years ago and runs dance classes to suit all levels of experience. 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 a Burns Night Ceilidh with haggis supper, which next year will take place on Saturday 12 January 2019.
Most classes and dances take place at Park Walk Primary School, Chelsea and St. Columba’s Church Hall, Knightsbridge. In addition we hold a Beginners class in Richmond as well as a family class, held approximately fortnightly on Saturday mornings in the Clapham Junction area, where young people, their families and friends can enjoy dancing simple country and ceilidh dances together.
Whether you are wanting a more sociable pastime or just looking for a friendly and fun way to get in trim, we can help. If you are a beginner, no special clothes are required, just wear something comfortable and soft, flat light shoes.
Information about all our activities and locations can be found on the Branch website www.rscdslondon.org.uk and the Branch’s social media pages.
No partner is needed to enjoy the fun, fitness and friendship of Scottish country dancing.
Classes begin on Wednesday 19 September 2018
