Scottish Country Dancing

Welcome to SCD in Auckland & Northland

Scottish Country Dancing is a fun, lively and social form of dance that originated in Scotland. It involves groups of dancers performing a series of steps and formations to the rhythm of traditional Scottish music. This traditional art form has a rich history and is enjoyed by people of all ages as a way to celebrate Scottish culture and engage in community festivities.

The Auckland-Northland Region has many clubs and events for you to get involved in. No previous experience is needed, and you can come by yourself or with a partner and is a great way to keep fit and make new friends in our welcoming community.
