At this time, Celtic traditions were popular in music just as much as in dancing. Soon our fledging club had contacts with various music bands, of which MÉZ is to be mentioned, thus more and more often dances were accompained by live music.
This initiative and its popularity caught the eyes of an official cultural programme organisor and led to our finding a stable home in the Virányos Community Centre of the 12th district in Budapest.
Since the early 90s, we have participated in more and more international Scottish country dancing balls, mainly in countries close to Hungary (Austria, Germany, Czech Republic) and some of us have already been to Scotland and to the U.S.A. too. At these events we have made a good number of friends, not only from the host countries, since these balls attract fans from all around Europe or even overseas.
Since 1992 our club has been an affiliate member of the RSCDS and some of us are members as individuals.
With our skills developing, the group is more and more often invited to dance at various events. Thus we have danced at folk dance festivals, at Scottish companies' (or those trading with Scottish products) marketing campaigns and other business events, film shooting, bars and pubs.
In order to achieve our long-term aims and to give a formal framework to our fee-earning services such as training (most often for school balls) we had to find a suitable legal entity. This led to founding the BUDAPEST Scottish Dance Club which is a self-sustaining, non-profit association without any government support.
The club is open to anyone who wishes to join and we appreciate any support, financial or other. If you like Scottish dancing and agree with our club's aims, please contact us!
