The Scottish Schools Working Group (SSWG) needs your help!

The SSWG was originally set up to promote and encourage more school pupils in Scotland to Dance Scottish.

We are appealing for volunteers who would be able to provide Scottish country dance teaching support to a geographical area, however big or small, in order to respond to requests from local primary or secondary schools, and/or Active Schools Coordinators.

As a result of our connections with Sport Scotland, who are responsible for Active Schools Coordinators, and from interest generated by teachers and students who visited our stand at the recent 2022 Scottish Education Expo, sadly we now find ourselves without enough volunteers to respond to requests.
We would really appreciate if any Branch teacher or member, would be willing to join the volunteer SSWG teacher list so that the RSCDS can achieve our strategic aim of promoting and developing Scottish country dancing in Scotland and worldwide for present and future generations.

Please click the 'Register Your Interest' link  or alternatively you can send a direct email to the SSWG Chair, Lorna Valentine, at
