Welcome to the Somerset Branch of the RSCDS

 

Please be advised that our classes have been suspended due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.    The Branch hope to recommence classes in September, however this will be dependent on the current recommendations in place.    Please contact our secretary if you have any questions, and in the meantime please stay well and safe.

The Somerset Branch is a small group who are very enthusiastic about Scottish Country Dancing, and always welcome new members to come along and join us.    Our classes are all taught by Qualified RSCDS Teachers and we offer classes for all abilities.      We hold weekly branch classes in term time at Long Sutton Village Hall and School, and there are also classes at Ashill and Somerton which are also taught by our teachers.   

You don’t need a partner, or special clothing, apart from wearing soft shoes for dancing, and of course there is the wonderful music to listen to and enjoy.    

We hold an annual day school, tea dance, workshops based on new publications from the RSCDS,  and encourage our class members to attend Scottish Dancing events around Somerset and beyond, including workshops, day schools, residential dancing holidays, RSCDS Summer and Winter Schools and much more.    There is also a Facebook page (Somerset Scottish Country Dancers) where you will find lots of posts from the Branch, and from many other branches and groups around the South West
