The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society demonstrates that Scottish country dancing is Scotland's ballroom dance. It is a social dance for dancers of all ages and background. Dances are performed in sets, usually with six to eight dancers. Not be confused with individual dances like the Highland Fling or Sword Dances, country dancing is a couple's dance. It is much like the type of dancing seen in period drama films. Some call Scottish Country Dancing the ancestor of American Square Dancing.
