Submit a dance for inclusion in RSCDS Book 53

In 2023, the RSCDS will be marking its Centenary and will be publishing a celebration book of dances – Book 53 in 2023. As with previous books they would like Branches to be involved in the submission and selection process.
London Branch is therefore asking members if they have a dance to submit, or a popular non-RSCDS dance they would like to see published by the RSCDS, to contact us via vicechair@rscdslondon.org.uk
These are the conditions published by the RSCDS:

  • Branches may submit a maximum of 3 dances – if submitting 3 dances, please ensure that they are in different tempos. The submissions can also include medleys
  • Please specify if your submitted dance(s) can be considered independently of any submitted music or whether the dance and tune have to be considered together
  • You may wish to submit a dance that was previously published locally – it could be a dance that has become popular in your area and you are keen to share it with the global dance community
  • Alternatively, the submissions can be new dances but we would prefer those that have been produced in your Branch and danced locally
  • Dances can be submitted with or without named / suggested tunes. The music should not be associated with another dance
  • Please ensure that you have permission from both the deviser and, where possible, the composer to submit the dance and the tune
Please submit your dances to vicechair@rscdslondon.org.uk by 31 January 2022.
  • Your email should be titled “Submission for Book 53 in 2023”
  • Individual documents are requested for individual dances
In the event of us receiving more than one dance of any tempo, we reserve the right to choose from those submitted.
