The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society - Central Iowa Branch
(RSCDS-CI) is an organization
whose members share an interest in Scottish Country dance and music.
Classes offer instruction in the style, steps, and formations used in
traditional dances of Scotland. At social events members and
newcomers have fun getting to know each other on and off the dance
floor. Presentations to various groups demonstrate the pleasure of
Scottish Country dancing and increase awareness of Scottish culture in
The high point of our year is a
Spring Ball, where dancers of all skill levels
as well as observers
come together to enjoy friendship, dancing, live music and pageantry.
Iowa State University students have formed an affiliated group, the
Celtic Dance Society.
This organization arranges
classes on Monday nights as well as other activities for students.
RSCDS-CI is a member of the
Ames Community Arts Council.
