There is an AGM yearly which all members can attend.
Whenever you join a club you are not obliged to join 'The Society', but enthusiastic performers ought to join and help its work. You can expect to obtain two magazines annually with development and tales from limbs all over the world.
The Society units and maintains standards for actions, structures and dances so that various groups all over the world will be performing more or less the same thing.
The Society collates, selects and posts brand new dances each year or two, with songs, as well as the branch organises courses to show these brand new courses into class instructors while the members.
There clearly was a Winter class, summertime class, and a Spring Fling organised by headquarters on a yearly basis which you are able to go to for courses and dances, and the opportunity to meet other dancers off their countries.
The Society offers the ways training brand-new teachers with classes and exams in either the local part or at St Andrews at summertime School.
An extensive assortment of old dances and songs as well as other memorabilia is held by the Society in Edinburgh, preserving the culture of our nation.
The Roxburgh Selkirk and Peebles Branch organise an annual Ball, Day Classes, Autumn classes (for new dances), and promote dancing into the schools through our Youth Coordinator.
