About us

As an RSCDS Branch since 1946, we share a common aim to foster and promote Scottish country dancing, its technique and its music.

We also believe that it promotes a healthy lifestyle through physical and mental exercise. But, above all, it’s sociable and fun! We try to do this through our dance classes, our social events and our demonstrations.

For 70 years, we have seen many new dancers through our doors who have learned to improve their skills with the help of their Branch teachers.

Notable among these was Anna Holden, who also acted as Director for RSCDS Summer School held in St Andrews and wrote a number of well-known dances, some of which you can find on our publications page.

We hope, like many before you, that you have an enjoyable dancing career!

During 2016, we marked the anniversary of the Birmingham Branch, formed in 1946.

Following a dance competition, the final selection of dances for our commemorative book was made and The Platinum Book has been published and is now on sale.
