Branch Information

Dancers enjoy the Annual RSCDS dance in the Bell’s sports centre in Perth.

Perth and Perthshire Branch of the RSCDS was established in 1925 and is one of 44 Scottish branches and one of 170 branches world-wide. We run dance classes to suit everyone – from children through beginners to the most advanced dancers. Every other year we get dressed up in all our finery for the Perth Ball – held in May in a local hotel. You can find our programme on the “RCSCD Events” page.  And, if that’s not enough to satisfy your dance cravings, Perthshire has an abundance of dance clubs meeting in town halls, schools, church halls and community centres almost every night of the week.  You can find out more here “Perthshire SCD events”.

Perth and Perthshire RSCDS is a Registered Scottish Charity SC024464.

Book of Perth Dances

Our branch has published a book of dances which have connections with Perth and Perthshire, either relating to the area or written for or by dancers within this area. Members were asked to submit dances for consideration and the working group selected the dances for publication. From 42 dances submitted, 12 were selected and Margaret Breckenridge won the competition to design the front cover of the book which is on sale for £2. The CD with James Coutts Scottish Country Dance Band to accompany the book, is available for £8.  The book and CD can be bought together for £8.
