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.
