Welcome To Scottish Country Dancing in Croydon

A charity that promotes the practice and enjoyment of Scottish Country Dancing

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Frank Bennett on October 5th. Frank, Elizabeth and their daughter Catriona are well known in the Scottish dancing community, particularly in the south east, and they were regular attendees at Summer school in St Andrews. Our deepest sympathies to his family at this difficult time.

AUGUST UPDATE! All classes and dances are cancelled until the end of the year.
If you are missing dancing there are Zoom classes on Wednesdays at 7pm: Link to join RSCDS Online Class. If you go to Dance Scottish at Home you will get information on what is being done by RSCDS HQ to help us through these difficult times.
Given the latest Government advice, all Croydon RSCDS classes and dances (including the Band dance in April) have been cancelled until further notice. We wish you all a safe and healthy few months, and hope to see you when classes and dances can resume. Please see the Tartan Jigsaw Calendar for cancellations of other local dances.

lasses started again on Friday 10 January 2020, at Coulsdon Methodist Church Hall, Brighton Road, Coulsdon, CR5 2BE. Single combined class for all levels, from 7:30 to 10 pm.
Have a look at our new videos of dances! There are several links to click on in the cribs in our
Three “new” dances (devised since our last book was published), including A Dance for Dorothy, with link to video.
We like to show a few photos from our dances, in our
Gallery and on social media, but if you prefer not to have any shown with you in, please let us know and we will be happy to respect your wishes.
