Online classes

Each week a different RSCDS Teacher will be there to guide you through a mixture of basic movements, warm ups, technique, steps and dances, giving variety across the classes.

Live every Wednesday (currently at 19:00 BST), the class will give you the chance to dance with RSCDS members around the world at the same time.

Hosted on Zoom, the classes will give you live video and instruction, with the opportunity to post written Q&As throughout the session, which can be answered at the end of class. You can also post messages on the ‘Chat’ area of the Webinar to other dancers.
  
It may take a few minutes for everyone to access Zoom, especially for the first time, so please join at 7 and class will start after approximately 5 minutes.

The classes will be kept to within a half hour slot, as learning remotely will be a different experience for everyone. 

From now on, you will need to enter the passcode 878151 to join the class.
