Boston Branch, Royal Scottish Country Dance Society

Welcome to Scottish Country Dancing!

You don’t have to be Scottish, wear a kilt, or even speak English to enjoy Scottish dancing!

There are branches of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society the world over, from Boston to Bombay, with classes, parties and balls open to all.

Dance to the lively beat of jigs, reels and hornpipes, and to the elegant strathspey, unique to Scottish music.

Join the fun... any age, singles or couples... all are welcome!

Become a Branch member by downloading and submitting the membership form, or apply online here.
