The Autumn Gathering 2022

A weekend of dancing and discussion

The Autumn Gathering allows dancers to gather over a weekend in Scotland. Dancers from the UK, North America and continental Europe take part in classes, discussion forums and workshops. Whether attending as delegates or spectators, all enjoy the social events which surround the business of the AGM. Dance with us on the Friday ahead of Saturday evening’s grand ball!

The 2022 AGM will take place on 5 November and further details of the 2022 Autumn Gathering event will be confirmed in due course.
