Classes Suspended

With great regret I am announcing the suspension of our gathering on Thursday evenings for Scottish country dancing in Manhattan at St. Bart's.

Please be sure to check the websites for upcoming events you plan to attend in case of cancellations.

We will resume when the public health threat presented by the rapid spread of the virus wreaking havoc all over the world has passed. Perhaps a party at that time would be in order!

Stay safe until we dance again.

--Chris Ronald, RSCDS New York Branch President
