Booking is now open for this year’s RSCDS Conference Weekend at the Bell’s Sports Centre in Perth from Friday 3rd November to Sunday 5th November.
In addition to the dances, classes and our Annual General Meeting, the Weekend will include some extra events to provide members with more information and to develop the profile of the RSCDS.
Classes, Conferences & Dances
The Weekend will start with a Teaching Conference, and on Friday evening there will be a country dance in the Main Arena and a ceilidh dance in the Coaching Hall. Dancers with a ticket for the country dance will be free to move between the two halls.
The Open Forum on Saturday morning will be aimed at Delegates, Branch Reps and Committee Members. There will also be updates on the new RSCDS website and the Basic Teaching Qualifications, as well as a country dance class. During lunch time our youth demonstration team will be performing in the town, and throughout the day exhibits from our Archives will be on display at the Bell’s Centre.
The AGM will be held as usual on Saturday afternoon, but this year the Scoll of Honour presentations will held at the Civic Reception immediately prior to the Ball in the evening.
Saturday’s class will be taught by Andrew Nolan, accompanied by George Meikle.
Members of the Board & Management Committees will be meeting on Sunday morning, while at the same time there will be a presentation on Scottish dance music in the Coaching Hall. The Weekend will conclude with a country dance class.
Sunday’s class will be taught by David Queen, accompanied by Rodger McAndrew.
Some of these events are free, and you can buy tickets for dances and classes individually, or a combined ticket for all dances and classes costs £50.
