Dancing in the Gardens to Live Music

Dancers and Castle

The Gardens Scottish Country Dancers is a not-for-profit group dedicated to arranging summer evenings of Scottish Country Dancing to live music in the open air in Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh - an activity which has gone on for over half a century. We also organise some indoor dances allowing dancers to indulge their enthusiasm when many of the clubs have reduced activity for the summer.

The Programme for 2017 is now available.

In recent years we have typically held two dances per week in June and July, and one one per week in August, with dances in the open air on the Mondays in June and July, the remainder being indoors. That pattern broadly continues this year, but with some important variation. For full details see the Programme page.
