About the Delaware Valley Branch
The Delaware Valley Branch is the local association of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. As such the Branch seeks to further the goals of the Society by promoting Scottish country dance through classes and social events for members and the general public. We aim to share this dance form throughout the Delaware Valley.
The Branch offers a unique experience to our members and the public by encouraging physical fitness through energetic dancing and enjoyment of Scottish music in the region’s vast multicultural environment.
