About Us

Did you know there are over 500 Scottish step dances that have been created over the centuries? As with any genre, some have stood the test of time while others have drifted into the unknown, and others wait to be created and discovered. We hope with our small contribution to the Scottish dance world that our non-profit organization will provide a much needed resource for dancers and teachers alike.

During the recent pandemic, we initiated and sponsored a monthly Zoom Scottish step dance workshop with an international cast of teachers and participants. It was very well received and many of the dances taught have already been included in performances.
The organization is not limited to just step dances, but will include other dance styles, music, and research sources relating to the rich Scottish culture.

We hope you find this website useful and informative. Happy dancing!
