Welcome to Scottish Country Dancers - and would be Dancers
At Glasgow Branch of RSCDS, we are greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty was an inspiration to the nation. She held a special place in our hearts as the Royal Patron of RSCDS and because of her love of Scotland. At this time, we send our deepest condolences to the Royal Family. Ruth Beattie reminds us that the Queen loved Scottish country dancing. Ruth and the team in the picture had the privilege of meeting the Queen when they presented her with a copy of the Diamond Jubilee book devised in her honour. The Queen expressed great pleasure in receiving this and she singled out one dance,'The Castle of Mey', which she thought she could dance and so intended to include it on Balmoral dance programmes.

The Royal Scottish Country Dancing Society (RSCDS) is a world-wide organisation, with local groups, called 'Branches' e.g. Glasgow Branch, Isle of Skye Branch, London Branch, Toronto Branch, Tokyo Branch, Moscow Branch - a community across continents.
Scottish Country Dancing is characterised by the style of its music.
You don't have to be a Scot to find your foot tapping to the irresistible rhythms of our reels, jigs and strathspeys.
Dancing is fun, can be energetic and is a great way to keep fit.
