Welcome to Scottish Country Dancers - and would be Dancers

The Glasgow Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) is dedicated to promoting Scottish Country Dancing in the greater Glasgow area.

We organise dances, classes and events throught the year for all abilities - and ages.                                                                                    Summer dancing......
Come and join us for the fun, fitness and friendship.  You will be made very welcome.                                             

Scottish Country Dancing is the social dancing of Scotland and is characterised by the style of its music, often Scottish, Irish or early American.  You don't have to be a Scot to find your foot tapping to the irresistible rhythms of our reels, jigs and traditional strathspeys. The dancing is fun, and can be energetic so a great way to keep fit.  It has more formations than ceilidh or barn dancing, hence the weekly classes to enjoy new dances and recap old favourites for specific dance events.

If you are a beginner or used to dance a while ago at school, try a beginner's class.  (See FAQ's for common questions and answers.)
Bring a smile and a sense of fun.  Meet new people, make new friends and be part of our welcoming family. No one is left sitting on the sidelines.

Whoever you are, wherever you are from, come and dance with us!                                                                          Visit our Facebook page
