It is with regret, the Club Executive advises that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it will not be possible to plan for a resumption of dance classes and events in September of 2020. This arises from both the Club’s own need to be able to comply with BC Medical Health directives and the availability of suitable venue(s) for dancing being made available by the authorities responsible for them.
The Vancouver Branch of the RSCDS has cancelled classes and events for the remainder of 2020, as have Salt Spring Island Scottish Country Dancers; Nanaimo and Courtenay-Comox are expected to follow suit soon and VISCDS (Victoria) is presently reviewing the situation. Oceanside Executive will be meeting soon to review further our Club’s situation and will provide update(s) as we go along.


Welcome to the website of the Oceanside Scottish Country Dancers.  We are an affiliate of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) and have members from Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Comox, Courtenay, Nanoose Bay, Port Alberni and the surrounding areas known collectively as Oceanside.  We welcome new members at any time and it is not necessary to have either experience or a partner.  Our goal is to have fun, enjoy the music, make new friends and learn new dances.
