Scotia Dancers is a New York City-based affiliate of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, a worldwide network dedicated to promoting Scottish Country Dance.
What is Scottish Country Dance?
Scottish country dancing is social dancing that can be spirited and lively, but also grand and elegant, danced to the music of Scottish jigs, reels, and strathspeys. Scottish country dance is rooted in a centuries-old style that survives today and continues to evolve with the continuing creation of new dance formations and musical tunes.
Monday Night Classes
Scotia Dancers meets for Monday night dancing at Metro Baptist Church, located at 410 West 40th Street (near 9th Avenue). Change of Location: Our scheduled December 2nd class will be held at Pearl Dance Studios instead of our usual church hall. Pearl Studios is located at 500 Eighth Avenue, 4th floor. We will be in room 404.
Scottish Country Dancing is a great way to make friends, get some exercise, and most importantly, have lots of fun! This type of dancing is enjoyed on every continent of the world and is popular with people of all ages and interests. You don't have to be Scottish to enjoy learning the dancing and music of Scotland.
Learning Scottish Country Dance is a way to be a part of the global Scottish Country Dancing scene, which offers classes and events, including dance schools, weekend events, formal balls, and social gatherings.
You don't need a partner, nor any experience, so come as you are, with a pair of flat, comfortable shoes. You will join with qualified teachers and more advanced dancers to learn the footwork and formations. Scotia Dancers prides itself in being a friendly and welcoming place.
