The New Jersey Branch of the RSCDS holds classes and parties open to all who are interested in Scottish Country Dance.
Congratulations to NJ Branch member Chris Ronald for having his dance 'MacDonald of Keppoch' published in the new 'RSCDS Book 49'. Seventy-eight dances were submitted to the RSCDS; after extensive evaluation by groups all over the world 12 were chosen for this publication.
'MacDonald of Keppoch' refers to the clan of which the Ronald family is a sept. The dance is a medley in a square set with a nice flow to it. Cribs and diagrams are on the Strathspey Server page; on-line you can watch the official RSCDS video or see our own Fanwood group dancing it.
In addition to devising dances Chris is a longtime member and teacher in both the NJ and NY branches and also dances in England.
