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 a Faith Tea or Supper.
We also run at least three Day Schools including Highland Dancing and a Musicians' Workshop. In addition there is a residential weekend course in Malhamdale in the autumn.
We organise monthly Saturday evening social dances with live bands from September to June, and several Family Ceilidhs. The annual ball in November is run jointly with the York Branch
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.
We welcome new dancers, visitors and newcomers to the area at all our friendly classes, courses and social events.
Leeds Branch will be celebrating its 60th birthday in June 2022.
