Welcome to the Dumfries Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.
Branch classes restart in September
Adults' classes restart on Monday 7th September at St Andrews Primary School and Tuesday 8th September at Laurieknowe Primary School. Have a look at our Branch membership page for the benefits of being a Branch member and to download a registration form.
We held a workshop to go over the dances in the new RSCDS Book 49. There are some photographs of the participants on our Galleries page.
RSCDS Summer School 2015
Dumfries Branch member David Davidson was part of the demonstration team at Week 1 of Summer School in St Andrews. See his photo in our Galleries.
Children's Day of Dance
There are some photos on our Galleries page of all the young dancers having a great time at the Day of Dance.
There is now a Facebook page for the Branch.
We are the local association of an international movement known as the RSCDS. Our main purpose is to enjoy dancing Scottish country dances. The branch was formed in 1947 and currently has around 100 members.
If you are interested in starting to dance, here is the opportunity to take up an activity that provides healthy exercise to keep you fit, mental activity to keep your brain alert and a great social life with people who enjoy dancing to great Scottish music.
What is more, Scottish country dancing is a relatively cheap pastime, there is no need for special dress (though many dancers acquire traditional items) and you do not have to have a partner.
