Scottish country dancing is an excellent way to keep active by learning basic Scottish dance patterns and formations.  Make new friends and spend time socializing.  Enjoy  superb Scottish music!  It’s so easy to get started *no partner required *no special clothes – just soft shoes.

Hello from Kelowna Scottish Country Dancers!  We’re sure missing our classes, but members have been staying in touch via phone, email, Facebook and some members have been using the “Discord” app that our teacher Sarah McQueen set up.  On this group social app, we’ve shared thoughts on Scottish country dances and compared differences between dances, watched bite-sized videos from RSCDS, and discussed the history of KSCD.   

This past January during “Burns’ Week”, KSCD performed at a few retirement communities throughout the Kelowna area.  This has been a KSCD tradition for many, many years. A splendid time was had by all and residents enjoyed the performance of Scottish country dances and also a Highland Fling!  A short intro on tartans and their history then singing by our dancers was also well received.  We ended the concert by inviting residents to join us in singing The Star O’ Rabbie Burns, Auld Lang Syne, and Oh Canada.  

Our last event of the season was the Okanagan Valley Spring Fling on March 14 hosted by Naramata SCD Group.  Although many people cancelled because of the pandemic, the 36 dancers who attended enjoyed an excellent programme followed by a sumptuous late lunch.

KSCD group did not restart in September and currently have no firm plans to restart.  This situation will be revisited in January 2021.
