Scottish Country Dancing

Scottish country dancing is a modern form of the country dancing popular in Scotland in the 18th century.

It usually involves groups of six to ten people of mixed sex dancing to traditional jigs, reels and strathspeys played on the fiddle, accordion, drums, etc. (no bagpipes, mostly!).

Many of the dances derive from traditional sources such as old manuscripts and printed dance collections, but a lot more have been created in recent years. It is this fusion of the traditional and the modern that gives Scottish country dancing it's lasting appeal.
