What do you need to know to participate?
The events in the Princes Street Gardens are open to all, from
experienced dancers to spectators. As in previous years, each dance
will be demonstrated once by a team of experienced dancers. The
programmes principally comprise dances for which prior experience is
desirable, but several simpler dances are also included which can be
picked up instantly, and there are one or two of modest complexity
which can be managed if sufficient people in the set know the
The indoor dances are not demonstrated, but are called once before
the dance. These dances, therefore, are more suitable for those
with prior knowledge.
