Demonstration Team

We have a team of advanced dancers that make up our Performance Demonstration Team. We perform at a variety of events that celebrate Scottish history and world cultures, including the Phoenix Highland Games and the Gilbert Global Festival. We also lead participation activities with groups that want to experience dancing for themselves, such as with church youth groups and Scottish workshops.

If you are interested in having our demo team perform at your event, please contact our team leader, Larry McLeister at (602) 708-9766 or rscdsphoenix@cox.net.
