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.



As the country is still in Lockdown due to the Coronavirus we have taken the decision to cancel our entire summer season of dancing. We have held off making this decision in the hope that we might have been able to do part of our programme but this is not going to be possible. Hopefully, we will get the chance to dance next year at the Ross Bandstand but in the meantime, we just have to take care, stay safe, and look forward to when we can dance again.
