Dance Scottish – A Summer Celebration

Dance Scottish A Summer Celebration


We hope Dance Scottish At Home is keeping our members and fellow dancers and musicians entertained as we cope with the cancellation of so many Scottish dance events over the summer, not just Summer School at St. Andrews, but local dances and international schools all over the world.  Even Summer School in New Zealand in December and January has been postponed.

We cannot re-create the magic of a Summer School online, but we are hosting a virtual celebration of Scottish dance from 27 – 31 July. Each evening there will be classes, music, talks, pictures and the chance to ‘chat’ with friends as we share some of the enjoyment of Scottish dancing. The finale to the week, on Saturday 1 August, will be a dance playlist chosen by our members.

Just like our weekly online classes, this celebration will feature internationally renowned teachers.  There will also be special contributions from Teachers’ Association (Canada), New Zealand Branch and other countries where RSCDS schools should have been happening.  In addition, a series of music workshops will be running throughout the week and there will be activities for children on our website.

More information will be released in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on the event listing and your Dance Scottish At Home eNewsletters for updates.  You can prepare for the event by purchasing a limited-edition Dance Scottish – A Summer Celebration t-shirt or tote bag. All items are printed on demand and shipped direct by Teemill. Visit the RSCDS Teemill site now to browse the options! 

We would love to see pictures of you sporting these items wherever you are in the world!  Arrange a virtual or ‘bubble’ get together with your dancing friends that week and make A Summer Celebration a real social occasion.
