New Beginner's Classes starting 10th September 2024 with a discounted taster session (£3 in cash) Email Us for more information or to sign up.

Scottish Country Dancing is similar to Ceilidh (pronounced "kay-lee") dancing. Our classes teach you the skills and confidence to dance. You don't need to be Scottish to dance Scottish! So be brave and give it a go.

  • Beginners/Improvers Class- Tuesdays September - May (except Christmas and Easter holidays);
  • Intermediate/Advanced Class - Wednesdays September - May (except Christmas and Easter holidays).

Please see our Classes page for more details.

We also run social dances, which are opportunities to meet like-minded people from other classes. Our classes will help prepare you for these. Please see our Social Dances page for more details.

RSCDS Manchester Branch will be celebrating its 90th Anniversary year in 2025 with a series of events and a new book of dances. We hope you can join us.

For a contact list of other nearby dance groups and useful links, please see the Useful Links & Other Groups page.

Occasionally we are able to perform demonstrations or run Ceilidhs for a small fee, subject to availability. Due to the size of the group, we request at least three months notice. More details can be found on our Displays and Demonstrations page.

Our Affiliated group "The Gay Gordons" also run Ceilidh classes and LGBTQ+ oriented Scottish Dance classes. Please see The Gay Gordon's Manchester Website for more information.
