About

Scottish country dancing is a very social form of dancing usually in ‘sets’ of six or eight people. Come along for fun, fitness and friendship.

In the Wellington region, twelve clubs and two children’s classes operate between March and November each year. We hold many social dances, usually on a Saturday evening. New dancers are always welcome at beginner classes and regular club nights. Dancers visiting from other parts of New Zealand or abroad are most welcome to join us at club nights or social dances.

These clubs are affiliated via the Wellington Region to the New Zealand Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. The Society was established in 1923 by its co-founders to protect and promote the standards of Scottish country dancing. Today it is an international organisation headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland catering to the needs of some 25,000 members. Scottish country dancing is a common pastime for thousands of people around the world — come join us!
