Welcome to the website of the Paris Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society!
Learn the steps and the formations to the sound of traditional music both old and new, in an international ambiance of fun! Scottish Country Dancing is danced in groups (called sets) of four, six or eight. Sets of six or eight dancers are the most common. Some dances are easy, while others take a bit longer to learn. Elegance, stamina, teamwork, and most of all fun, all combine to make dancing a fantastic experience! Opening a window not only on Scottish culture, but also on others in the world, you can dance in Paris, but you can also take your dancing shoes to Scotland (of course), to New York, Tokyo, or Hawaii, on the five continents in fact, and find dancers ready to welcome you all over the world.
Come and join us, we’re waiting for you!
