Whilst the country ballroom dances of England, Ireland and Wales became unfashionable, and nearly forgotten, Scottish Country Dancing never died. Scotland's clan system with the Clan Chieftains’ demands for dancing, were greatly responsible for its continuation and Scottish Country Dancing was accessible to all, from the barn to the ballroom.
In 1923, the Scottish Country Dance Society was formed to preserve Scottish country dances. Members of the British Royal family have long been enthusiastic participants in Scottish Country Dancing with King George VI bestowing the title of “Royal” on the Society in 1951. Thanks to the efforts of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, we can now enjoy the spirit of authentic Scottish Country Dancing around the world!
Absolutely brilliant, we had the most fun on the dance floor in a long time. As experienced dancers - this was the perfect break, a pleasure from beginning to end!
