Bournemouth Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society


[Two Couples Dancing]

Who are we?

Everyone, is welcome, to come and try traditional Scottish Country Dancing, under expert tuition. It's great fun and we have a very happy and friendly group of Dancers, who would make sure that you would have a truly unique experience. If you are a complete beginner, or want to improve your dancing, or need good physical and mental exercise, then this is where you need to be! Beginners will be welcome at the commencement of the dancing season in September/October. As Scottish Country Dancing is fairly energetic, a fair degree of fitness is really needed.

We have a team of RSCDS qualified teachers led by Marilyn Watson (01425 278436 - who is also a RSCDS Tutor, Adjudicator, Children's Medal Test Assessor, Examiner and RSDCS Summer School teacher.
