Welcome to the Dumfries Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.
Just a reminder that a Teachers' Workshop is being held on Saturday 22nd August in Locharbriggs Community Centre from 11.15am to 4.45pm (registration from 11am). The workshop is to go over dances from the new RSCDS Book 49 and is for anyone involved in teaching Scottish Country Dancing. See the Events page for full details.
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.
