The St. John’s Branch sponsors and participates in many activities related to Scottish Country Dancing in the St. John’s area. We offer classes for beginning and experienced dancers. Socials, with music provided by the band Corryvreckan, are held several times during the year to provide more formal occasions to enjoy Scottish Country Dancing. The members of the demonstration team perform at various festivals and functions throughout the year.
The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (R.S.C.D.S.) is an international organisation of more than 20,000 members in 166 branches and 449 affiliated groups worldwide. Through the network of local branches, the RSCDS provides opportunities to learn and dance the country dances of Scotland. Founded in 1923, its primary aim is to practice and preserve country dances as danced in Scotland. Booklets containing music and instructions for dances are published regularly.
