August 16, 2020 - Our in-person classes are currently cancelled.  We are offering a virtual class Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm our Houston RSCDS Facebook page.  Our Annual Ball in October has been cancelled, but keep checking back on our page for updates on other possible events and when classes will resume.



May 16, 2020 - For the first time in Branch history, we held our annual AGM virtually!  Thank you to all of our dancers who joined us on Saturday; it was great to see you all again.  After the meeting, we enjoyed a virtual ceilidh with music and dancing from our homes.  It was wonderful to have all of the participation to make it a fun event.  While these are certainly unprecendented times, we are excited for the year to come with our newly elected board!  



March 3, 2019 - We had a wonderful afternoon dancing at the lovely Schneider Hall in Columbus, Texas for the Go Texan Dance!  Afterwards, we enjoyed a BBQ dinner together.  Thank you to everyone who brought a side dish to share, travelled to dance with us and for all the board members who organised it!
