Royal Scottish Country Dance Society
The Norwich branch of the RSCDS was formed in 1956 as a result of exiled Scots and local people in the Norwich area wishing to further their experience and learning of what had been, up to then, the occasional Scottish Country dance evening, mainly to celebrate St Andrews night etc.
Over the years, locations for classes and dances, in and around Norwich, have been many and varied. In 2006 we celebrated our Golden Jubilee, the main event of the year being our Jubilee Ball held at the Norwich Assembly House in May. We have now celebrated our 60th Anniversary Ball on 14 May 2016 at The Willow Centre, Cringleford, Norwich. In 2017, we successfully held our May Ball at Princes Street United Reformed Church, Norwich NR3 1AZ. In 2018 and 2019 we held our May Ball at Sprowston Community High School, Norwich NR7 8NE.
we have 40 members and new members are always welcome (singles or couples).

The branch has five experienced RSCDS-qualified instructors to cater for a wide range of abilities, from beginners to experienced dancers. In addition, we have a demonstration team available for displays and events in the region.
We hold several social dances throughout the dancing year as well as a day workshop in November, which we hold at Trinity United Reformed Church Hall, Unthank Road, Norwich NR2 2PA, see our Events page for more details.
