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 contact:   Becky Glamm (262) 424-7040 or rglamm@wi.rr.com, or Terry or Loraine Garner (262) 242-1650 or tgarner@wi.rr.com or lgarner@wi.rr.com. You may also call for information regarding demonstrations and performances.

  Class Dates and Locations
 

How we structure our classes:

In the first half, the entire group does simple dances. Dance steps formations will be taught, reviewed or improved. Toward the end of the first half, intermediate level dances will be taught.  These dances will include a step, a formation or formations taught earlier.

For the second half, intermediate and advanced dancers will develop their dancing skills on more advanced dances, truly challenging formations or dances in preparation for upcoming events.  Midway through the second half, the entire group repeats one of the simple dances taught earlier or will dance another simple dance, which has a step, a formation or formations taught in the first half.
