Classes

Come Join The Fun

Scottish Country dance classes are great for exercising and socializing. Honolulu weekly classes are held each Monday at Paradise Park in Manoa. We start the evening with warm-up, easy steps, and simple dances perfect for beginners or the experienced dancer looking to review and refine the basics.  We then step it up a notch with more advanced dances and techniques. Everyone is welcome.

Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for more info on Scottish country dancing, what to wear, and what to expect from your first class.

RSCDS Membership

RSCDS-Hawaii membership primarily supports the activities of RSCDS. As an organization, we sponsor dancing, and usually dining, social events about once a month. RSCDS-Hawaii members receive discounted rates for certain events held throughout the year.

We put on dance demonstrations at various occasions, including the Moilli’ili Fair at Stadium Park, the Children & Youth Fair at the Hawaii State Capitol grounds, Burns Supper, and the Hawaiian Scottish Festival.  For information for having a Scottish Country Dancing presentation at your event, call one of the instructors.
