Copy of Copy of Winter School 2019

A week of dancing at the edge of the Highlands

Winter School is the Society’s most prestigious annual event. Taking place over five days in the town of Pitlochry, we welcome around 150 dancers from the UK, continental Europe, North America and Australasia. The highlight of Winter School is a splendid Ball that takes place in the majestic setting of Blair Atholl Castle.

A Winter Evening

Since it was not possible for dancers to join together in Pitlochry for the 2021 RSCDS Winter School, we hope you enjoyed connecting online instead through “Dance Scottish A Winter Evening”.

Hosted by William Williamson, Chairman Elect and Winter School Co-Ordinator there was a playlist of popular dances to RSCDS recorded music accompanied by videos of dancing from RSCDS events with photos and background dance information. Each video was introduced by the 2022 Winter School Teachers and the evening included musical moments from the 2022 Winter School Musicians. 

Enjoy watching the recording of the event from a cosy sofa or dance around the living room!
