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: Terry Garner, Loraine Garner or Cory Sterling at SCD.MKE@gmail.com, or call 414-301-3701. For information regarding demonstrations and performances, please contact Diana Hankes at dianahankes@gmail.com.

  Class Dates and Locations  

How we structure our classes:

We initiate classes with warm ups and stretches, followed by a short focus session to improve technique. The class then divides temporarily, with newer dancers (along with a couple experienced dancers for support) learning/reviewing/improving formations whilst the more experienced dancers further develop their dancing skills as they learn/review/improve challenging formations and dances, or learn dances for upcoming events. The groups then recombine to dance one or two dances which utilize the formations previously focused on by the newer dancers. If time allows the experienced dancers then learn another challenging dance, giving the newer dancers the opportunity to observe.
