We are the Newcastle & District Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, promoting the traditions of Scottish Country Dancing in the North-East of England.  We cover the area from Morpeth in the north to Durham in the south and from Hexham to the east coast.

We offer :
DANCES - every month except August you can dance to well-known Scottish Dance bands, usually on a Saturday night.  All these dances are informal except the Highland Ball in November.

CLASSES - if you’ve never tried Scottish Country Dancing or haven’t danced for a while, there are classes for all ages and different abilities throughout the region.  

NEW CHILDREN’S CLASS - for details of a new children’s class in Newcastle, click here.

DISPLAYS - our display team is happy to brighten up your activities, from Burn’s Night suppers to fundraising events.  We can help to run a ceilidh with general dancing and displays or we can provide a show for more formal occasions.
For further information contact our Display Convenor  Peter Avery on 07900 215036

Our next event is

An Informal Dance
at the Joseph Swan Academy
on Saturday 8th October
