AGM & Conference Weekend 2019

A weekend of dancing and discussion

The AGM & Conference sees the largest number of dancers for any single Society event gather over a weekend in Perth, Scotland. Some 500 dancers, principally from the UK, North America and continental Europe, take part in classes, discussion forums and workshops. Whether attending as delegates or spectators, all enjoy the social events which surround the business of the AGM. Choose a dance or informal Ceilidh (open to all) on the Friday ahead of Saturday evening’s civic reception and grand ball.

Saturday

 

A full day of events awaits all those who make their way to the Bell's Sports Centre on Saturday. From a talk on the RSCDS Archives to a general class, and of course the Open Forum and our Annual General Meeting, members will be immersed in all things Scottish Country Dance.

Saturday class will be taught by Deb Lees, with Angela Young playing

Carrying on from the day's activities is the evening Ball, 2000 - 2330, where attendees dress their best for a civic reception and a night of wonderful music and dance. Playing will be the Nicol McLaren Scottish Dance Band.

In the Coaching Hall, we will have a Nice N Easy dance, with music by Frank Thomson.

Please note that attendees will need to book their own accommodation. We suggest booking early as local establishments tend to sell out quite fast.
