You don’t have to be Scottish, wear a kilt, or even speak English to enjoy Scottish dancing!

There are branches of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society the world over, from Boston to Bombay, with classes, parties and balls open to all.

Dance to the lively beat of jigs, reels and hornpipes, and to the elegant strathspey, unique to Scottish music.

Join the fun... any age, singles or couples... all are welcome!

Become a Branch member by downloading and submitting the membership form, or apply online here.

COVID-19 musician relief fund: Assistance is now available for musicians who regularly play for RSCDS Boston Branch events and have lost income due to COVID-19 crisis. In response to the COVID crisis, SDCEA announces the creation of a temporary new fund to provide assistance to these musicians. SDCEA will accept applications for funds from musicians who play for Branch events, Branch classes, and event chairs. Tax-deductible donations to this fund can be made here. Once the crisis has passed and in-person events have resumed, any unused funds will revert to the Ed Rawson Fund.

You can also make non-deductible contributions directly to the individual musicians here.
