This was broadcast again on St Andrews Day.  Watch again below:


A playlist of 9 popular dances to RSCDS recorded music accompanied by videos of dancing moments from RSCDS events with photos and background dance information. Join in wherever you are with The Duke of Perth; Links with St Petersburg; Minister on the Loch; The Reel of the 51st Division; Pelorus Jack; Miss Gibson’s Strathspey; The Ullapool Ferry; Asilomar Romantic and finishing with the Flying Scotsman.

The Summer Celebration comes to the Autumn Evening with Musical Collaborations from the Summer Musicians’ Workshops.
The evening will also include an Autumn Evening Interval featuring Jimmie Hill and Maureen Rutherford and inspiring us with tales of dancing and music of the past.
Enjoy from the sofa or dance around the living room!  As usual, the Chat will be open for the worldwide dance community to connect with each other. We look forward to joining you virtually on Saturday 7th November for “Dance Scottish An Autumn Evening”.
