The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society

The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) is a registered Scottish charity (SC 016085) dedicated to promoting Scottish country dance. It has a worldwide network of branches and affiliated groups, with the Headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland. Members form branches, and these branches run classes and social events for their members and the general public in a their particular area. The Society organizes national and international events on a regular basis and runs schools in Scotland to bring Scottish country dancing within reach of anyone and everyone whatever their age or ability.
