Virtual Teachers Conference

In 2022, The RSCDS launched the first Virtual Teachers Conference. Organised by our volunteer Education & Training committee, various Scottish country dance teaching associations from around the world took part to present this virtual event. If you were unable to attend virtually, you can watch all the recorded videos right here! We hope you find the innovative stories and ideas shared inspiring.
