About Scottish Country Dancing

Scottish Country Dancing is a very social form of dancing danced in ‘sets’ usually with four ‘couples’ – unlike Highland Dancing which is usually solo dancing.

Scottish dress is not required to attend clubs, dances or balls and you don’t need a partner to join a dance club.

The RSCDS New Zealand Branch Inc is an autonomous local association of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.  It aims to:

  • Preserve and further the practice of traditional Scottish Country Dances and modern dances in traditional style
  • Provide or assist in providing instruction in the dancing of Scottish Country Dances
  • Promote the enjoyment and appreciation of Scottish Country Dancing and music.
