The Royal Scotch Quadrilles are a lively five-figure set written by London dancing master Thomas Wilson in the early 1820s in an effort to merge Scottish dance figures with the quadrille format. His complex choreography is both great fun and a great performance piece that incorporates a variety of reels (heys) for three or four. It works well with early nineteenth century Scottish steps as well as with those used in modern Scottish country dance (RSCDS).
