ANNOUNCEMENT: New Beginner's Classes starting 16th April 2024 for 5 weeks. Email us to let us know you intend to come along or for more information.

Welcome to the RSCDS Manchester Branch website. We are a volunteer-run group who enjoy this lively and entertaining form of dancing. We run two classes:

  • Beginners/Improvers on Tuesdays September - May (except Christmas and Easter holidays);
  • Intermediate/Advanced on Wednesdays September - March (except Christmas holidays).

Please see our Classes page for more details. Note that these are not Ceilidh (pronounced "kay-lee") or Highland Dance classes.

Our Affiliated group "The Gay Gordons" run Ceilidh classes and LGBTQ+ oriented classes. Please see The Gay Gordon's Manchester Website for more information.

For a contact list of other nearby dance groups and useful links, please see the Useful Links & Other Groups page.

We also have two social dances per year, in November and February. Our classes will help prepare you for these. Please see our Social Dances page for more details.

Occasionally we are able to perform demonstrations or run Ceilidhs for a small fee, subject to availability. Due to the size of the group, we request at least three months notice. More details can be found on our Displays and Demonstrations page.
