In need of a little challenge? Take a peek at some of our newest activities for young dancers (but of course all ages can get involved)!

Let's draw Rowan

OK, Rowan is not the easiest to draw, so we have put together a little how-to video that simplifies the character and shows you how to draw them using simple shapes as a starting point. We have drawn Rowan on a computer using Adobe software and a pen tablet, but the process is exactly the same with a pen and paper!

A couple of tips:

  • You will need a pencil, eraser, pen (like a felt tip) and paper if you are doing a traditional drawing.  If you would rather go digital, follow the video using software on your computer or iPad - it's up to you!
  • Remember, this is YOUR Rowan - add your own artistic flair and don't worry if it doesn't look exactly the same as the original. Drawing freehand creates unique results!


What's the word, Nessie?

More commonly known as a word snake, ours is a Scottish version - enter Nessie herself! Follow the letters along Nessie's body and find the Scottish country dance terms written there. How many can you find?

That's puzzling...


Put Miss Milligan back together again! We have transformed the RSCDS co-founder's portrait into a 70 piece jigsaw puzzle that you can complete online. Can you beat our time? Bonus points if you can tell us where this piece of art lives... (Hint - the answer is on our website)
