The branch is registered charity 1072452, aiming to promote and teach Scottish Country Dancing.
The Leeds Branch of the RSCDS was formed on 21st June 1962 by 4 members of the Leeds Scottish Country Dance Club - Miss Mair Pinnell, Miss Shirley Shields, Dr. William Cunningham and Hammond Jack. Since our formation we have run dances with bands, initially only twice a year but now every month. Details on the branch constitutions and current committee members are on this page.
A history of the Leeds Club is available, written in 1971.
Roy was one of the most prolific modern dance devisors, he was also a member and chairman of the Leeds branch. The dance database at Strathspey shows 244 dances created by Roy.
