  • So what is Scottish Country Dancing?

The dances are a little like a Ceilidh or English barn dance with groups of dances usually in 2,3 or 4 couples dancing in set patterns. Some of these patterns can be very pretty and they range from the very simple beginners dances to those for dancers with years of experience.  Scottish Country Dancing should not be confused with Highland dancing which includes sword dances and is usually for groups of individuals demonstrating individual skills.

Perhaps this is best explained in the pictures from the web site of Marucho where you can find many animated gifs for national dances…
