Coming out of lockdown

The committee is looking at how to restart dancing as the covid-19 restrictions are eased. We may do some dancing over the summer if we can get access to the church. We will contact members once we know what we can do when.

On-line dancing and music

There are a variety of ways to keep in touch with dancing on-line. gives you access to a weekly podcast with music and chat about dances. If you click on a week you will get access to that week’s email Newsletter which has a link to that week’s podcast. At the foot of the page you can access all the weekly online dance classes that the RSCDS has been putting on. You do not have to be a RSCDS member to access these resources.

If you are on Facebook you can look for “Tunes in the Hoose”  – musicians located in different places, and even in different countries, magically playing together. The original concept was thought up by Martin MacLeod Snr, a founding member of Capercaillie, inspired by Shetland accordionist Peter Wood, who was posting daily ‘tunes in his hoose’ whilst in isolation. The initial collaboration between Martin and Peter was stitched together by Martin MacLeod Jr, a filmmaker based in Glasgow, marking the start of the internationally-acclaimed community known as “Tunes in the Hoose.”
