Whether you are looking for us to entertain your guests with a colourful spectacle of Scottish dancing or if you want to join and dance yourself – look no further as we have the perfect solution to bring a unique Scottish flavour to your event.

Let us entertain you

We can bring you a performance of Scottish country dancing that will bring colour and energy to any occasion. The graceful movement of the dancers following the intricate patterns of the dances to the dynamic reels, jigs and strathspeys of Scottish music create a real spectacle. Our team have delighted audiences in the UK and across the world and are regularly in demand. Our performances can be as formal or informal as your event and have danced in all sorts of settings from receptions for Her Majesty the Queen to local fairs and everything in between.

We can provide displays of dancing; or help you to organise a more informal ceilidh evening for your guests. Recently we enjoyed participating in a reception for the Secretary of State for Scotland where guests could watch our display and then we helped them to join in some ceilidh dancing. The guests all enjoyed the friendliness and ease of an evening of Scottish dancing.

I’d just like to thank your dancers for giving us such an excellent evening. The students absolutely loved it and it was a great introduction to the pleasures of Scottish dancing. The fact that they all joined in so readily is credit to your team.

We understand that flexibility is key in ensuring the success of your event and we can tailor our offering to suit the size, scale and importantly the budget for your event. We are as happy helping prepare for a wedding ceilidh with friends, or a fun birthday party as we are performing in front of hundreds with a full band at a more formal engagement.

Our musicians are among the best in their field who play regularly for functions and events in Edinburgh and abroad. The number of musicians can be tailored to suit your event and budget from a solo fiddler or accordionist to a whole band. We can also include pipers, singers and verse speakers.

We’ve been delighted to have RSCDS Edinburgh Branch Demonstration team entertaining visitors as part of Music in the Museum during the Anstruther Harbour Festival. The dancing was very professional and well received by the locals and the many tourists that were in Anstruther and the East Neuk at the time and we look forward to having them dancing again at a future event.
