Who We Are



SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCE
Scottish Country Dancing is the historic social dancing of Scotland done to exciting jigs, reels and elegant strathspeys. For centuries, these dances were enjoyed at court and in the countryside. Today, hundreds of groups around the world enjoy the sociability of this unique dance form.

Many of these groups are part of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS). Each of these groups offer classes with a friendly, helpful program in which to learn. You may travel all over the world and find a group of friends you just had not met yet.

To locate a group, try the following sites that maintain extensive lists of SCD dance organizations: Grand Chain, The InterCity Scot and The Strathspey Server.

Scottish Country Dance groups that support our music and dance education programs are:

Cameron Scottish Dancers
Scotia Dancers of New York
Thistle School of Scottish Country Dance

Demonstrations.  Many RSCDS groups and independent groups have demonstration teams.  If your group or organization wants a colorful dance presentation with lively music, e-mail ScotiaDMP@aol.com or call 212-330-7643.
