BC Highland Games
Of all the different types of national dance, Scottish Country Dancing
is surely one enjoyed by a large variety of peoples and cultures.
Flourishing Scottish Country Dance clubs can be found all over the world,
and not just in those countries which became the most important destinations
for Scottish emigrants. It's colourful and lively, and the music is irresistible.
The Royal Scottish Country Dance society was formed in Edinburgh in 1923.
From its earliest days, the Society has sought to promote, preserve, and
to maintain the standards set by its founders. In addition, the RSCDS
has always been anxious to emphasize the social character of
Scottish Country Dancing, offering plenty of opportunity for friendship and fun.
The Vancouver Branch of the RSCDS was formed in 1965, although
Scottish Country Dancing had been active since the 1930s.
The objective of the Branch is to teach you the basics, so that you may travel
to any other club or attend any workshops across Canada, the USA, or overseas,
and feel comfortable in doing so. RSCDS dancers all over the world
are being taught the same basics.
