Welcome to the Dumfries Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.
DG Scottish Country Dancers
The older girls from the class at Noblehill Primary decided to show how Scottish country dancing can be done to modern music. Here is a link to a video of them dancing.
And take a look at our Galleries page for some photos taken at the last class of the session when the children and young people showed parents and friends what they had learned.
The Branch Summer Dance on Friday 20th June was a great success, with a good number of dancers from other areas joining us, and all enjoying the music of Willie McRobert's band. A most enjoyable way to spend a sunny summer's evening.
The AGM was held on Tuesday 27th May. See our About us page for the names of the committee members and the new Branch Secretary.
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.
