Royal Scottish Country Dance Society
Our end-of-term ceilidh is Friday 15th December - why not bring your friends?Scottish country dancing is sociable, energetic and fun. Not only is Scottish dancing a good exercise that keeps you fit and healthy, it's also a great way to make new friends. RSCDS Brighton Branch classes are tremendously good value at only £4 for each evening.
Come and learn to dance at RSCDS Brighton's friendly Friday classes in Patcham. For more details visit classes - country. Beginners and improvers are always welcome!
Highland dancing, which includes sword dancing, is for individuals and is very popular with children. We often perform highland dancing for competitions and displays.
On the far left you can see someone dancing a highland fling, which is a highland dance. In the photograph, Rod is demonstrating a sword dance.
Scottish Country dances are set dances. They are more complex than ceilidh or barn dancing, so they involve your brain as well as your body.
On the left are people in two rows who are dancing a Scottish country dance called the Petronella. The video clip on the right features the reel: The Glens of Angus.
I am grateful to Marucho's Folkdance Gallery for the two delightfully animated gif images above left.
