Newcomers are always warmly welcomed! We love the dances and music of Scotland. Join us for great fun and friendship. We encourage everyone to come try a class anytime! You don't need a partner or Scottish heritage to enjoy this very entertaining form of social dance.

Starting on September 3, 2014, classes will run from 7:30 to 9:45 p.m. at the Durant Center in Old Town Alexandria, just two blocks from the King Street Metro. Please join us on that date for our Fall Welcome Dance Party!  (
