The Perth and Perthshire Branch of the RSCDS runs a series of classes, dances and social events throughout the year.

Events are in Perth unless otherwise stated.

Classes 2020/21

With much regret the Committee has reluctantly decided to cancel the Winter Classes (January to March 2021) due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic and the related social distancing requirements. We hope that the Branch weekly classes will resume in September 2021.

We hope to resume Branch Classes in September 2021. Further details including precise dates will be posted here when they become available.

Spring and Summer Events 2021

The Committee have sadly decided to cancel the Branch’s Spring Classes and Summer Dances. The vaccine rollout is well underway, however potential new Covid variants and the eventual reduction of social distancing measures where dancing is at the far end of the latter makes the resumption of dancing this Summer unlikely. The Committee will keep monitoring the situation, and if appropriate and sufficient demand, will try offering some Tea Dances.

Save the Date: 2021 Perth Ball

Perth RSCDS will hold its 2021 Perth Ball on Friday 24th September 2021 at the Station Hotel in Perth. James Coutts Scottish Dance Band has been booked.
