Branch details


Branch profile

The Forfar Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society has its origins in the Angus Branch, which was formed on 29th October, 1934. Subsequently, in the summer of 1953, the Angus Branch split into three separate branches, one of which was the newly constituted Forfar Branch, the others being the present East Angus and Carnoustie, the latter now defunct.

We meet on Tuesday evenings from September to April at 7.00pm. at the OAP Hall, Chapel Street, Forfar, DD8 2AB.

We are a fun group who enjoy our dancing. Everyone is welcome to join us, whether a member or not. If you are a beginner, all you need to bring is a pair of soft shoes. You do not need to come with a partner as you will change partners throughout the evening. Scottish Country Dancing is very much a social activity.

The health benefits of Scottish Country Dancing are well documented.

Tuition is provided by our class teacher, Lorna Valentine, who is a fully certificated RSCDS teacher.
