Where to dance
There are many clubs in Queensland who conduct weekly classes and would welcome new members. For details of classes and contacts, please, check the class information page on the Qld home page.
Social dance nights will be held througout the year at different locations, sometimes with life music to dance to. To get a feel for the joy and enthusiasm of Scottish Country Dancers all over the world check out the video clips posted on youtube.
What to wear
For classes, something cool. Remember it can be pretty warm in Queensland, even in winter. Usually shorts for men and a blouse and skirt, or dress, for women to allow plenty of movement. Both sexes should wear soft dancing shoes.
For Socials, men are encouraged to wear the kilt.
How much does it cost?
Some clubs charge a small annual membership fee, and all clubs charge around $4 - $6 per class, sometimes including supper. However you look at it, it's a very cheap way of enjoying a really healthy form of recreation and making new friends!
You can also join the RSCDS Queensland Branch Inc which gives you automatically membership of the RSCDS parent Society in Scotland and entitles you to extra benefits. The total fee for branch membership in 2014 amounts to $50 for one person or $90 for a couple.
