Covid 19 Measures for Branch Classes and Dances

Please find below the measures that will be followed at Branch Classes and Events in line with RSCDS / sportscotland guidance issued on 9th August 2021.

If you have any of the Covid symptoms (fever, continuous cough, loss of taste or smell), have tested positive for Covid, or are isolating as required by NHS Test & Protect or as per overseas travel requirements please do not attend the class or dance.

Masks must be worn when entering, leaving, and whilst moving around the building.  Masks must also be worn while sitting out at the side, and during breaks when not eating or drinking.

Masks do not need to be worn while dancing, standing in the set, or teaching.

Please sanitise your hands at the end of every dance.

Please bring your own hand sanitiser and personal water / refreshments that you require. As the doors / windows will be open a jumper may also be useful.

Please use only one chair.

For Classes the Class Register will be used for NHS Test & Protect purposes.  As such your contact details will be confirmed by your class coordinator at the start of the Autumn Term.  For Dances / Events a Test and Protect register will be taken.

Any Questions? Please contact the Branch Covid Officer Sue James

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 we hope very much to resume the Spring Classes and Summer Dances in 2022.

Save the Date: 2022 Perth Ball

Perth RSCDS will hold its 2022 Perth Ball on Friday 22nd April 2022 at the Station Hotel in Perth. James Coutts Scottish Dance Band has been booked.
