What we're about

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.

Our classes 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 which is accessible via the Blue and Yellow Lines. There is also available parking on the street and in the lot behind the Center. Other groups meet in Bethesda, Greenbelt, Frederick, Baltimore, Charlottesville, and Richmond.
