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 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 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!

The staff and musicians for Winter School 2020 are listed below:

Teachers Musicians
William Williamson Rodger McAndrew
Angela Young Shona Macfadyen
Janet Johnston Ian Robertson
Andrew Nolan David Oswald

 

Afternoon sessions

Afternoon sessions for 2020 will include (dates and times TBC):

  • Whisky tasting
  • Talk from John Muir Trust on Wild Scotland
  • Guided walk around Pitlochry
  • Archaeological visit to the Scottish Crannog Centre

Class Selector

Please read the information on classes, which helps you choose the class best suited for your level of skill.

This class will continue to develop steps and formations. It will focus on all aspects of technique: footwork, handing, phrasing, transitions and teamwork. Some dances from the evening programmes will be taught.

This class will continue to develop steps and work on more advanced formations, handing, phrasing, transitions and teamwork. More challenging dances will be taught in this class.

This class will only take place if there is sufficient demand. This class is for those who dance at a high standard of technique and expertise but prefer a class that is less intense. A high level of stamina will not be expected in this class.

This class is for dancers who dance at a very high standard with correct rhythm, foot positions and extension in steps and can sustain the energy level for the whole course. All formations in The Manual should be known and danced with precision, good handing and phrasing.
