Return to Dancing Guidance

Good news - we have been advised that outdoor Scottish country dancing can restart in Scotland, providing all activity is consistent with current Scottish Government guidance.
Please click here to view the RSCDS Return to Dancing Guidance.

On-going News ...

Hopefully members have been receiving the RSCDS weekly emails with news and links to the online RSCDS classes, held on Zoom at 7pm each Wednesday evening ?

It is good to be able to join in with dancers from around the world for the class with a mystery teacher each week, and the fortnightly 'Dance Scottish at Home' (DSAH) email is packed with information, music, puzzles etc to keep everyone interested and amused.

You can watch the classes later (at a time to suit you) using the email link which is sent the following Friday afternoon, or via the RSCDS Headquarters website (www.rscds.org).

If you have not been receiving these emails (or the electronic version of the Dancer magazine, issued recently), it may be that your address is not registered with HQ. If this is the case, please let us know via our Contact Us page and we'll try to sort this out for you. 

From the Headquarters website, you can also watch the Society's virtual AGM which took place on 7th November 2020 and the evening dance (also virtual) - both provide very interesting viewing.

IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES OF SOCIAL ISOLATION & DISTANCING ...
if any of our members or SCD friends needs any help with shopping etc (or just a friendly phone call), please drop us a message using the Contact page and we'll see what we can do !

A large number of SCD Rallies, Dances and Classes across the area remain cancelled (see Dance Diary).

News from Mini-Crib (6/5/21)

When we weren't out enjoying the April sunshine, the MiniCrib Team were adding more cribs to our database.  We've reached around 6100 cribs but we've still got plans for more!
We are hopeful that there can be a return to some form of social dancing in the autumn, although it is too early to be sure about the conditions then.  We have our fingers crossed.

If you haven't already come across the dance "City of Wisteria" devised by Peter Marshall (Alderley & District Caledonian Society) then we can thoroughly recommend the dance.  There's an excellent video (https://youtu.be/bqIQC308DQw) and a crib for the dance in MiniCrib.  If you would like a copy of the full instructions you can email us at minicrib@minicrib.org.uk and we'll be happy to email a pdf copy to you. 
Peter is dancing 1st Man in the video with the Kasukabe Sugar Candie Scottish Dancing Group, Japan, 2019.
Music By Luke And Adam Brady.

The latest edition of MiniCrib is now available to download from http://www.minicrib.org.uk

If you have suggestions for new dance cribs then please do get in touch at minicrib@minicrib.org.uk

Best regards,
The MiniCrib Team
