The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) has been promoting Scottish Dance all over the world for over 80 years. Its London Branch was the first to be formed outside Scotland. Today the Branch runs classes and dances where you can join in the fun of Scottish Dance. We also hold classes and dances for young people to introduce them to Scottish dancing. We publish a quarterly magazine called The Reel and our prize-winning demonstration team give displays of Scottish Dance all over the Southeast at events, ceilidhs and private functions. 2020 was our 90th anniversary and we have been celebrating our 90th anniversary with special events (some continuing into 2021 due to the COVID situation).

The principal object of the Society and its Branches is to preserve and further the practice of traditional Scottish Country Dancing and to promote the music relating to it. The Society has over 166 Branches around the world with a combined membership of around 21,000. Both the Society and the London Branch are registered charities on the basis of their educational roles in the preservation of traditional dancing.
