Summer vacation

Oxford will be entering a team for this - get in touch if you're interested in going!

RSCDS Summer School – Sun 20th July-Sat 17th August 2014, St Andrews

This is an excellent course with first rate teachers and musicians, and jolly good beaches and a sea to paddle in. Most people go for a week (OUSDS usually aim for 2nd week - 27th July - 3rd Aug), and it's great fun (and improves your dancing too!). There are classes during the day at every level with wonderful teachers and musicians, and dancing every night (plus after-party dancing too), with people from all over the world, in sunny St Andrews. Plus beautiful beaches and amazing ice-cream, if you need any further incentive!
