Branch profile

RSCDS Leeds Branch has just celebrated its 56th birthday in June 2018. We are based in Leeds,
West Yorkshire, but draw members from many smaller towns and villages in West and North
Yorkshire such as Ilkley, Harrogate, Knaresborough and Huddersfield.
We run a range of SCD classes in Leeds and Ilkley: general classes for everyone, including
beginners, and two for more experienced dancers. There are afternoon, evening and weekend
classes. End of term classes often feature live music and Faith Tea or Supper.
We organise monthly Saturday evening social dances with live bands from September to June, at
least 3 Day Schools including Highland Dancing and a Musicians’ Workshop. In addition there are
two residential weekend courses, one in the autumn in Malhamdale and one at around Easter in
In July, we host the White Rose Festival of Scottish Country Dancing, which attracts teams from
well outside our area, at Gateways School, Harewood: whiterosefestival.uk
We are also proud of the Leeds Branch Shop which provides a valuable asset for dancers across
the globe: www.rscdsleeds.uk
We welcome new dancers, visitors and newcomers to the area at all our friendly classes, courses
and social events.
