Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, Richmond Branch

Scottish Country Dancing is regarded as being good for your health as it is very active, good for your memory and also sociable. For those who also enjoy Scottish music and dance it ticks all the boxes!

Richmond Branch is part of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) and was formed in 1952.  The group is comparatively small, but is very active and holds a variety of classes and events during the season.

 

Classes are held every Wednesday evening at the Booth Memorial Hall in Catterick Village, DL10 7LD, from 7.00 - 9.30 pm for adults of all abilities. The first part of the class from 7.00 - 8.15 pm  is suitable for all abilities including  beginners.  After a short break, the second part of the class from 8.30 - 9.30 pm is for more experienced dancers.  Beginners are welcome with a special offer of 1 free class plus 5 classes for £10.00.  This year the season begins on 6th September and this could be the time to get involved - you do not need to bring a partner, but flat soft shoes are recommended for the first few lessons as Scottish dancers wear special shoes.

 

Socials are held monthly, on the first Friday, from September to April in the Town Hall, Richmond from 7.30 - 10.00pm, dancing to recorded music by a variety of good Scottish Country dance bands.  Dancers from other groups in the  area usually attend these socials.

 

Dances are held twice a year, in April and October, at Richmond School dancing to live music.  These events are attended by lots of dancers from outside the area. 

 

Lass of Richmond Hill  this dance has become our "signature" dance and can be seen as a video on You Tube and also on our website.
