Claire Cunin - Chairman

I discovered and started SCD in 2016 with the Lyon Branch in France. My first intent was to find musicians to play with, as I’ve played flute since childhood. But I was taken so much with the dancing that I decided to keep dancing! I've already travelled to a lot of SCD events, mostly in Europe but also further, and I am really looking forward to the next. Besides the joy that SCD brings to me, what I like the most is meeting you and seeing how SCD connects us all around the world. I am delighted to be involved on the new Youth Branch committee! See you on the dance floor!

Jona Kutsche - Secretary

Hey, I am Jona and I am the new secretary of the Youth Branch. I joined the Youth Branch committee in 2018 and since then have worked on the development of the Youth Branch with the other committee members. About me, I am 20 years old and studying at the university in Koblenz to become a primary school teacher, and I dance regularly in Bonn, Germany. I look forward to seeing you, dancing with you and talking to you all on the dance floors all over the world.


Jenny Robertson - Treasurer

I grew up surrounded by SCD music and I started dancing when I was 6 years old. So far I have only danced in the UK, but I can't wait to travel further as well to meet other young dancers. I'm super excited to be the new treasurer for the Youth Branch, and I hope to meet you on the dance floor somewhere soon!



Aymeric Fromherz

I started dancing and playing the piano in Lyon, and kept on doing it when moving to Paris, and finally to Pittsburgh. I am delighted to be part of the Youth Branch, and look forward to meeting you all in North America!


Jenny Russell

I was introduced to SCD at school and loved it straight away. I joined a class and have been dancing since. I currently dance with the Dumfries Branch taking part in local festivals and demonstrations. I have just came off a 2 year post here as a committee member, so I'm happy to now be part of the Youth Branch committee and helping to spread the word about SCD to more young people!

Lynetta Taylor Hansen

I dance and teach regularly in the Oslo Scottish Country Dance Group in Norway. I love dancing and I travel as much as I can to dance workshops in Europe. I joined the Youth Branch committee in 2017. I am looking forward to working for all our members, and hopefully also dance with you all somewhere soon!

Elizabeth Holtan

I discovered SCD in 2013 in the Washington, DC, area, and have been dancing, teaching, and traveling across the U.S. and Europe to do so ever since. After serving on my local branch's board for five years, I'm pleased to have this new role here with the Youth Branch, supporting the needs of our young dancers and the future of SCD around the world. Catch you on the dance floor soon!

Anton Korobeynikov

I started dancing in 2014 with cèilidh class in St. Petersburg, Russia. Soon after I fell in love with SCD and I'm still here. I'm very excited to be on Youth Branch committee and looking forward to see you at Spring Fling 2020 in St. Petersburg as well as other events in Europe and all over the world.
