Come dance with us!


Welcome to the Dumfries Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.

Branch dancers at the White Rose Festival July 2023

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 80 members.




If you are a dancer you will find within our web pages where to join in classes, dances and other events in south-west Scotland.

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.
