Scottish Country Dance

Scottish Country Dancing is the traditional ballroom and barn dancing of Scotland. Performed round the room or in longwise or square sets, one can see the intricate patterns of the dance unfold as the dancers step in time to the elegance and strength of the Strathspey, or the energy and agility of the jigs and reels, displayed as the couples progress through the dance.

Scottish country dances, unlike the folk dances of most other countries, were not confined to one grade of society only. On the contrary, they were danced and enjoyed in common by both laird and tenant or crofter. Thanks to the effort of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society and other groups, these national dances of Scotland have been preserved.

What is Scottish Country Dancing Anyway?
