RSCDS New York

The New York Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society invites you to join the worldwide community of dancers who thrill to fast-moving jigs and reels and stately strathspeys. Learn or polish your dancing skills in the friendly atmosphere of our classes. Share the joys of Scottish dancing and pageantry at our parties and Highland Balls. All welcome! No experience necessary! Come with or without a partner.


Summer Dancing. June 22 through August 10, RSCDS NY will be having social dancing on Thursdays at the usual class location and time (St. Bart's at 7:30pm). While brand new dancers would find the sessions too challenging, country dancers with some experience (Scottish, English, contra and square) will be able to do many of the dances each evening! We will then take a break and the new season will start in September. Newcomers will be welcome at that time. Admission: $12 per session, RSCDS members $10.
