Book 53 for 2023

Dance submissions for RSCDS Book 53


29th April Update: The Membership Services Committee is very grateful to all the branches and groups that offered to trial the dances for Book 53. Due to the high volume of responses and dances, the Committee is currently processing all the information and plans to share the allocated dances next week. Thank you for your understanding.


12th April Update: Thank you for your interest - the Book 53 Trial Groups list is now closed. The dances and accompanying music are expected to be sent out to participants in late April.


In 2023, the RSCDS will be marking its Centenary and we will be publishing a celebration book of dances – Book 53 in 2023. As with previous books we would now like members to be involved in the selection process.
Many thanks to all those branches who submitted dances. With nearly 100 branches sending in submissions, the Membership Services Committee are absolutely delighted with the response and are busy working their way through over 200 dances.
We are now looking for your help in trialling the dances and would love to hear from RSCDS Branches, Affiliated Groups and University Clubs who are willing to help with this process.
For the first time ever, we will be sending out the dances with music recordings and sheet music – enabling everyone to enjoy the dances with suggested named tunes. Those without named tunes will have shared resources to enable all dances to be trialled under the same conditions. The sheet music for the named and guide tunes will also be supplied for those branches and groups working with musicians.
We are planning to send out the dances and music in late April, giving a 2 month window for trialling and receiving feedback.
We would love to know which dances you want to see in Book 53. So, if you would like to be involved in the trialling process, please get in touch with your branch or local group and ask them to sign up to our Book 53 Trial Groups list before Friday 1st of April 2022.
