Dance Scottish was launched in 2007 as the focus for a worldwide week of recruitment and celebration of Scottish country dancing. While many branches and affiliated groups have been keen to participate, the"worldwide" aspiration created problems in timing the event to suit very different dancing calendars. As a result, in 2012, the need to attach "Dance Scottish" to events organised for a particular week in the year has been dropped. Instead, branches and affiliated groups around the world are encouraged to promote and unite their local effort to recruit and celebrate SCD under "Dance Scottish" at any time of their choosing. Already incorporated in our logo, the aim is to make "Dance Scottish" a globally recognised symbol of SCD at its best in providing quality fun, fitness and friendship.
