The Reel

This quarterly magazine is essential reading for anyone interested in Scottish Dancing in the Southeast. It contains information about dances, classes and day schools, it reviews new recordings and keeps you up to date with all that’s happening on the Scottish Dance scene.

Members of the London Branch receive a free copy of each issue – choice of electronic or hard copy (see Membership page for more details).
