The Scotia Dancers of New York offer social classes and parties in traditional Scottish country dancing (SCD), a dance form that combines exercise, sociability and stirring Scottish music. It is a form of pattern dancing performed in sets similar to contra or square dancing. Look for our meetup page to see what other people are saying about us. Once you learn the basics of SCD, you can travel throughout the world and find groups on every continent where you can dance (yes, groups have danced in Antarctica) .
