ABOUT SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCING

The National Dance of Scotland

Scottish Country Dancing is the national dance of Scotland. Unlike highland dancing it is social and noncompetitive and has been danced for centuries in cottages and castles. Scotland and France shared a strong alliance and this refined dance style was much influenced by the dancing of the French court.  

In 1923 the Scottish Country Dance Society was formed in Glasgow to both preserve and promote this very enjoyable social dancing. The Society, which received Royal charter is now known as the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society RSCDS, with Her Majesty the Queen as Royal Patron. The RSCDS  has 160 branches worldwide. Vancouver is one of the branches and Gleneagles is one of 300 affiliate groups.

Dance Classes

 

The Club’s three weekly classes run from September to May where new dancers are encouraged to learn, seasoned dancers practice for attending social functions and keen dancers seek more personal challenges.  

All are welcome. No partner is required. We dance for enjoyment, fitness and to be social while continuing the rich culture of Scotland’s music and dance.
