What is Scottish Country Dancing?

Scottish country dancing is the social dancing of Scotland, but you don’t need to be a Scot to find your feet tapping to the irresistible rhythms of the jigs, reels and strathspeys. The dancing is fun and can be energetic – it’s a great way to keep fit, meet new people and no-one is left sitting on the side lines!

Dancers, typically 3, 4 or 5 couples, arranged in two lines, or in a square, dance a sequence of formations. Take a look at the video below and see how its done!


The weekly beginners' session is relaxed and provides valuable foot work and formation practice.
