Affiliated RSCDS

The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) has a world-wide network of Branches and Affiliated Groups. The Society exists to promote and develop Scottish country dancing worldwide for the benefit of present and future generations.

The Milwaukee Scottish Country Dancers is a social group that enjoys learning and dancing the traditional jigs, reels and strathspeys of Scotland.  We host a Hallowe'en Social Dance as well as several dance parties throughout the year.  In addition, we occasionally perform at weddings, dinners and folk festivals.

Classes are open to anyone interested in Scottish Country Dance.  Beginners are welcome to watch and to dance.  It is not necessary to have a partner to participate.  You don't have to be Scottish!

For information regarding classes or regarding potential demonstrations and performances, please contact us at,

For general information regarding the Hales Corners class or the Mequon MT-Rec class, please contact Terry at
