Scottish country dance is open to all ages! As a young person, you are welcome at any class. You can find a list of all Scottish dance branches for different cities and countries on the RSCDS Group Finder page. Each branch has a list of classes on its website. If you’re just getting started, look for a “Beginner’s” class.

This section lists classes that are specifically meant for students and other young people. We encourage young dancers to attend these classes in addition to other classes in their area! Many open-age classes have strong youth attendance, especially in major cities.
