Home Page

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.



Our classes restart after Easter on Tuesday 21st and Thursday 23rd April.

Check out our classes page for full details and apply online today.

Do you think you have what it takes to join our demonstration Team? 

We are looking to recruit new  members to join our Demonstration team and are opening up the class during the Spring term to anyone who thinks they have potential to join us. 

We don't expect your dancing to be perfect already but we are looking  for dancers with potential 


and enthusiasm to improve, and more importantly, we are looking for dancers to fit into the team in both style and commitment.   

If you want to see us in action then check out our YouTube Channel.

It would be great if you are able to make all 6 classes but if you can only make one or two, that's fine. 

If you would like more information, and would like to give this a try then please contact us before attending any class.
