Branch profile

Founded over 45 years ago, the Northern Virginia Branch is a thriving group with more than 50 regular dancers. We host weekly dance classes and regular tea dances throughout the year. Our biggest event is Argyle Weekend, which takes place every fall and features a Welcome Dance, a Ball, and multiple classes led by prestigious guest teachers from around the world.

We welcome visitors, and would love to have you join us if you are in the Washington, DC area! We dance every week in Arlington, VA. There is plentiful parking in close vicinity to our venue, and it is also accessible via public transportation. The normal drop-in fee is $15 ($12 for any RSCDS member), but classes are free for first-time attendees!
