Scottish Country Dancing is a social form of dancing danced in “sets” usually with four “couples” – unlike Highland Dancing which is usually solo dancing.Scottish dress is NOT required to attend clubs, dances or balls and you don’t need a partner to join a dance club.  Partners who go dancing at clubs, dances or balls, do not dance all dances together.
