About Us

Ribble Valley Branch of the Royal Scottish Dance Society

There is a long tradition of Scottish dancing not only in Scotland but around the world, with historic roots stretching back centuries. In 1923 two Scottish ladies established the Royal Scottish Dance Society to promote cultural value and encourage increased participation. Our branch was formed in 1994 to expand this ethos locally and we currently have between fifty and sixty members.

We cover a diverse geography from South Ribble to the Fylde coast and Clitheroe in the east of Lancashire, with most of our classes and dances being held in the Preston and Chorley areas.

We are known for our warm welcome and friendly dancers who are keen to share their expertise, to learn new dances and be challenged. We have several classes to accommodate every level of expertise and hold quarterly dances as well as an annual trip to Scotland.
