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.


Basic Class Registration Opens February 15. The next series (Feb 15, 2018 - Apr 12, 2018) for the basic class will be open for all newcomers! Dancers are welcome to sign up in the first two weeks of the series at the special package rate--see the Classes page for details.
