Una semana de bailes en el borde de las Tierras Altas

La Escuela de Invierno es el evento anual más prestigioso de la Sociedad. Tiene lugar durante cinco días en el hotel Atholl Palace, con 150 participantes procedentes del Reino Unido, Europa continental, Norteamérica y Australasia. El momento cumbre de la Escuela de Invierno es el espléndido Baile de Gala que tiene lugar en el majestuoso entorno del Castillo de Blair.

Winter School

The RSCDS Winter School is one of our premier events. Attendees stay in the Atholl Palace Hotel, a four-star Victorian accommodation, that it is the epitome of comfort. 

Classes are held at different venues around the town of Pitlochry, a gorgeous village nestled at the edge of the Highlands. All venues are accessible by foot and/or car, and some are located in Atholl Palace. With classes being held every morning and optional classes or sessions in the afternoon, there is the potential for a full day of dancing; that is, if your feet are up for it!

For 2019 we are pleased to have Pat Houghton as Director. The staff for Winter School are:

Teachers Musicians
Pat Houghton Ian Robertson
Sue Porter Jim Lindsay
William Williamson Muriel Johnstone
Graham Donald Marian Anderson
