The Dancing

Typical dances at a Scottish ceilidh include the Gay Gordons, Dashing White Sergeant (see video below), Strip The Willow, Scottish Welcome, Canadian Barn Dance, Military Two Step, Virginia Reel, Cumberland Reel, Riverside Jig, St Bernard’s Waltz, Highland Schottische, Flying Scotsman and more.

They are all fairly straightforward and good fun to do. Each dance is explained at the outset by our caller, who will judge the mix of skills on the night, and tailor the initial instructions, and guidance once started, to suit – so no previous experience necessary.

If specially requested we can include the more challenging Eightsome Reel (see video below).
