Scottish Country Dancing has widespread following throughout many countries.
There is a wide variety of information readily available and we have listed a small sample of useful links below, which range from dance groups, dance teacher resources, dance instructions and many useful videos are available to watch a dance being performed.
If you would like to get an idea how the popularity of individual dances has waxed and waned over the history of SCD in Canberra please follow this link
. Dances that have been included in the Canberra Ball (for most years) since 1958 are recorded in a spreadsheet prepared by Brian Gunning.
On the SCD FAQ page
we have a few answers to some frequent SCD questions (with more as they arise).
