RSCDS Detroit Branch: Forty-Five Years and Counting
The RSCDS Detroit Branch was established in 1980 and often celebrates with anniversary balls. The branch’s goals are to provide instruction in Scottish Country Dancing, and to preserve and promote Scottish Country Dancing and its music. Classes generally start in September and continue through May.
Typical activities are branch classes, workshops, social dance sessions, demonstrations, and formal balls. Dances are done in Reel time, Jig time, or Strathspey time from recorded music in class. Social dances and balls typically feature musicians on a variety of instruments who add a special zest to the dance.
There is also an active group in Ann Arbor: The Tartan and Thistle Ann Arbor Scottish Country Dancers. Classes are held every Monday from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm in the sanctuary at Genesis of Ann Arbor, 2309 Packard Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104. For more information visit: Ann Arbor RCSDS
