Many of our major events have photos for you to enjoy.  Go to Photo Album and take a look - see what we are all about.

We are people of all ages and backgrounds who enjoy music, dancing, and good company. No prior dance experience is necessary to get started with this dancing style and partners are not required.  It's a great way to meet new people socially and keep active physically.

Interested in trying Scottish Country Dancing? Come by yourself or with a friend. You need not be Scottish to enjoy the fun.  Wear flat, soft-soled shoes without heels and come have a good time.  A kilt is not required!  As you begin to master Scottish dances, you will become familiar with reels, strathspeys and jigs and master a Poussette, pas de basque and an allemande.  Look at our class locations for the one you are nearest to and come try this traditional dance form.  On our dance calendar you will see where we are dancing next.

If you are looking for scholarship assistance for one of our workshops go to the Membership page of this website.

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. Visit their site to find out about world wide happenings.

Did you ever go to a Scottish event where the whole group linked hands at the end of the evening and sang Auld Lang Syne?  We often do.  Here are the words to Auld Lang Syne.  We promise you that you will meet new folks who are passionate about dancing.  Come Join Us.
