What We Do

Scotland's National Network for Traditional Dance

As a member-led organisation, we support the development of all forms of traditional dance in Scotland.

We encourage collaboration and exchange across dance forms and the traditional arts, and work with members, the traditional arts network, policy-makers, cultural, artistic and educational organisations to create & extend opportunities across Scotland.
