 Website Statement  -   Sunday 25th July 2021.

 1.  Glasgow & Stiring Branches seem at the head of the drive to organise dances at the earliest opportunity. See the  FIRST PRG post-covid presumeably in Scotland from Glasgow Branch. Classes AND Dances are being considered. Some are well advanced in provisional hall booking!!

  2.  A cautious Scotland lags behind England’s idea of ‘back to normal!! Vaccine Passports and QR codes for entry may be a problem for some!!

  3.  Getting up to speed on the dance-floor might be easier for some than others! Those who have been keeping up-to-date with the ‘dance at home’ brigade will find it a lot easier than other folks who have to dance to derive pleasure from the past-time.


  4.  The ‘Other Sites’ page has now been updated with a new address for Dances in Scotland (hosted by Mary Cant - Dundee Branch). Email address provided.












We must ensure this never happens again!!

This is to record my respects and mark the death of Mary Smith of the Red Deer SCD Club in East Kilbride  near Glasgow. Mary was a member of the club when I started dancing in the early 1990’s In Hairmyres Hospital Nurses Hall of Residence. The class was run by Pearl & Jimmy Smith. Mary was very kind and understanding of the difficulties experienced by a ‘new start’.  I have fond memories of Mary herself - a very kind and thoughtful person - Mary, I’m sure we’ll meet again!!
