It is a general class for beginners, returners and improvers. The class is run by RSCDS qualified teachers. After a break intermediate dancers offer assistance, less experienced dancers the chance to dance in a wider social setting, and everyone to relax and have fun.
The classes are held at:
Bents Green Methodist Church Hall
Junction, Ringinglow Rd, Knowle Ln, Bents Green, Sheffield S11 7P
(There is a map on our website: www.rscds-sheffield.org).
Classes cost £4, but your first visit is free.
We run Social Dances on the first Saturday of many of the months of the season, usually with recorded music, but we have a live band for our Annual Ball in December and our President's Dance in June or July.
In the past we have run a very popular Day School, but due to Covid we were unable to hold this event. However, in 2023 we shall be holding a Half Day School on the last Saturday in October. (Afternoon and an early evening dance). We have live music during the afternoon and at the evening social dance. Our guests enjoy some of Sheffield's finest home-made cakes.
We would welcome visitors to any of our events: www.rscds-sheffield.org
The Branch also enters teams at the annual ASCDS Festival and the White Rose Festival.
On our 40th, 50th and 60th Anniversaries we produced a book of dances devised by our members: the First, Second and Third Sheaf Collections (named for the River Sheaf, after which Sheffield was named). The 2nd and 3rd collections are accompanied by their own CDs of music: www.rscds-sheffield.org
