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 92nd 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.


Join in our classes at any time.

Our Beginners class at Bruntsfield gives an introduction to the basics of Scottish country dancing and will soon get you ready for your first ceilidh. Our Improvers class helps build your knowledge and skills. All our classes are fun and friendly. 

Full details are available on our classes page or email us for more information.
