The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society
This branch was formed in 1932, and with over 120 members is one of the largest British branches.
Dances and classes are organised by fully qualified RSCDS teachers to suit all levels of ability and agility!
Four country dances are held between September and May, including the hugely popular Crieff Weekend of dancing, which is held every year in January at the Crieff Hydro Hotel, attracting dancers from all over the United Kingdom.
Traditional Scottish dancing is a great way of getting fit, making friends, and above all having FUN!! No specialist equipment is required. Although soft soled dancing pumps are ideal — they are by no means essential — any light, soft soled shoe/trainer will do to get started. Clothes are best when loose fitting for ease of movement — trousers or kilts for men and skirts, trousers or light dresses for women.
