Join a worldwide dance community

We have never experienced a time like lockdown and to help support the worldwide community of Scottish country dancers, we started issuing a series of newsletters to our members and subscribers in March 2020 - Dance Scottish At Home. The aim was to include articles, music, games, podcasts and online classes that entertained and connected dancing friends across the globe during this unprecedented and challenging period.

Over the course of 40 issues, we shared photos and virtual videos from dancing events past and present, tales of summer schools and dancing trips, and were fortunate enough to have many readers sharing their memories sparked by the articles and photos in Dance Scottish At Home. 

 

RSCDS online classes

With 64 online classes we also travelled round the world with the RSCDS. Each week provided a different RSCDS Teacher in a different location with a mixture of movement, warm up, technique, steps and dances and importantly a regular opportunity to keep dancing.

ALL ONLINE CLASSES

 

We hope you enjoy the final edition of Dance Scottish At Home.

"I greatly appreciate the innovative way that the RSCDS has ensured that we all keep up our dance skills and stay connected to one another throughout this challenging time.  It was a real treat to have Angela teach the class accompanied by her husband, Graham on the piano.
Thank you again to the imaginative team at RSCDS for implementing this social connection for all of us in the worldwide dancing community."
