Branch profile

Kirkcudbright is a small town in the south west of Scotland famous for its art galleries and association with the Glasgow Boys especially E.A.Hornel. Kirkcudbright Branch of the RSCDS celebrates its 70th year in 2018. It is an active branch with approximately 20 members of all ages and abilities. Classes, on a Tuesday evening run from September to March. The Branch has a demonstration team which performs for various clubs and societies in the local area and in the Dumfries Festival. As well, it provides dancers for the Kirkcudbright Tattoo – not as large as the Edinburgh one but still a great night for visitors, and for the Scottish Nights held on Thursday evenings during July and August. Summer Social Dancing is organised for 8 weeks in the Spring, where dancers from local branches can get together to enjoy dancing, each evening is taken by a different local teacher. In January, along with Gatehouse of Fleet Branch an Annual Burns Supper and Dance is held – always well attended and a great night for all. We welcome new members and visitors to join us at any time.
