  • RSCDS Banffshire Branch

RSCDS Banffshire encourages Scottish Country Dancing throughout the historic county of Banffshire, and its surrounding area of North East Scotland. The Branch has over 40 members, including RSCDS certificated teachers who teach locally, nationally and internationally.

The Branch holds an annual dance on the second Friday in November.  There are also day schools, dance festivals,  special demonstrations and support for local schools with Scottish Country Dancing.  In addition, many of the local class groups organise their own 'end of term' and/or annual dance and welcome other dancers to join in.

The History of RSCDS Banffshire Branch
1929 to present day 

Originally formed as the Buckie and District Scottish Country Dance Society at a Public meeting in Buckie on Monday 9th September 1929, the title was changed to the Banffshire Branch at the first Annual General Meeting.
Those initial classes in Buckie soon spread when our first Dance Teacher, Mr John Duncan, accompanied by Miss Nen Watson and Mrs Jean Mair, taught classes at Forglen, Marnoch and Cornhill.

The tradition has continued for the past 90 plus years. 
We welcome new members of all ages and abilities
