Founded over 80 years ago, West Lothian Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society has around 90 members. We are a friendly, welcoming group who are dedicated to promoting Scottish Country Dancing throughout the West Lothian area. Our Branch runs a number of social events during the year, including an Annual Dance in December, an evening class and dance with visiting teacher and a dance weekend – see Events page for further information. We also run a Branch Class for adults who wish to to learn Scottish Country Dancing or improve their technique.
Scottish Country Dancing is an excellent way to keep fit, make friends and, more importantly, have fun!!
This dance form appeals to fit, lively people who have a sense of rhythm and it can also help to improve fitness and memory. RSCDS West Lothian Branch welcomes beginners and returning dancers of all abilities. No partner is required nor do you need any special equipment and, although soft dance shoes are preferable, trainers are suitable to get started. There is no specific dress code, just wear whatever you feel comfortable with. Why not come and give it a try? Check out the Groups page to find your nearest club.
It was with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II, Royal Patron of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. The West Lothian Branch of RSCDS wish to convey our sincere condolences to His Majesty, King Charles III and other members of the Royal Family in this huge loss to us all.
