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.  

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
A Simply Social Dance
at Knott Memorial Hall
Heddon-on-the-Wall
on Saturday 27th  September
