Virtual Summer School 2021

Three nights of virtual, Scottish country dance

This year, a smaller version of Summer School took place. To lead the classes we had some of the best Scottish country dance teachers and musicians in the world.

Whilst our traditional Summer School event in St Andrews was not able to go ahead this year, we were able to bring a little of that magic direct to you via the internet instead!

From 8pm - 9.30pm (UK time) on Monday 19th July, Wednesday 21st July and Friday 23rd July, you were invited to join us for a typical day at Summer School in St Andrews... all from the comfort of your own home!

Each session included the opportunity to:

  • attend a Scottish country dance class
  • enjoy watching the taught dance - look out for favourite locations in St Andrews!
  • attend a Step dance class
  • discover more insights into Summer School through interviews with some well known faces
  • get into the Summer School atmosphere with a trip down memory lane to previous Younger Hall evening dances - look out for yourself or your friends!
  • join the 'party room' at St Andrews as various musicians meet up for a musical stramash!

The chat function was also available at the start and the end of each session so you could spend the evening dancing at home and sharing memories with RSCDS friends.

We hope you enjoyed Virtual Summer School this year and we look forward to seeing many of you in person on the various dance floors at St Andrews in 2022!
