Welcome to the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, Edinburgh Branch. Since our formation in 1924, we have promoted Scottish Country dancing for the fun, fitness and friendship it can provide. Now in our 91st year, we continue to offer classes, workshops, dances and events for all ages and experience levels. Keep reading to see what is coming up in the near future, and explore the rest of our site for more information.

Classes continue until March 2015

ceilidh105There is still plenty of time to join in.

If you have never danced before or have little experience then our Beginners class is the one for you. You will be taught the basic steps, formations and simple dances in a friendly atmosphere. After a few weeks you will be looking to sample your first dance or maybe a Burns Supper.
