Take a look at Scottish Country Dancing

Here are a few video clips to give you an idea of what Scottish Country Dancing is about.

Every year in St Andrews there are four weeks of International Scottish Dance Summer Schools run by the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society with classes in the daytime, and dances and parties in the evenings.  Here are some YouTube videos from the 2017 Summer School; firstly a party.

Evening dances may look more formal but are just as much fun with great music to dance to.

Scottish Country Dancing has a unique slowtime rhythm called Strathspey.  Here is an example.

Finally, Scottish Country Dancing is a truly worldwide activity and new dances are being devised on every continent. This last is named Flight to Melbourne.

We would have liked to have had examples of dancing in and around Ipswich, however all our people like to dance rather than man a video camera!!
