RSCDS Exeter Branch
 
We are registered as a charitable organisation aiming to teach Scottish country dancing according to the guidelines laid down by the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.
 
RSCDS Exeter was founded in 1969. In May 2009, when the branch celebrated its Ruby anniversary with a ball, six of the founder members attended. The evening began with branch founder, Naomi Fraser-Holland, and 80 dancers being led by a piper in a Grand March.  Strathallan provided the music for the evening and the programme included dances written by the then Branch President, Sue Tyler (The Powder Monkey) and Chairman, Duncan Brown (The Zoologist). These dances along with ten others devised by Exeter Branch members have been collected in a book to mark our 40th anniversary.
