Scottish Country Dancing is the traditional ballroom dancing of Scotland. The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS), based in Edinburgh, was founded in 1923 to preserve this joyful, social dance tradition. Since then Scottish Country Dancing has spread all over the world.
Scottish Country Dancing is done in couples, but the couples also interact with a larger group, called a set. Our dancers have learned a series of intricate dances to perform, but we also will encourage the audience to get up and dance with us. Please ask any of our dancers for information about classes near you!
