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 94th 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.
