Our 2020 Programme

Dates, times, entrance costs etc

Dancing will take place:-

Detailed programmes will be posted here when they are available

Dancing, whether indoors or out, begins at 7.30pm and continues until 9.30pm. Entrance is £5 for adults and £1 for children.

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 dance.

The indoor dances are not demonstrated, but are called once before the dance. These dances, therefore, are more suitable for those with prior knowledge.

Need a reminder of the steps?

Watch this space for detailed descriptions of the dances on the programmes, as they become available.

These days there is a wealth of videos on the internet of groups performing Scottish country dances, so it can be helpful to type the name of the dance into a search engine like Google or Yahoo and investigate some of the suggested links. You may also find it helpful to refer to the following collection:- Note that we cannot guarantee the quality of dancing shown in these videos. Note also that some videos may contain more than one dance, so they may not begin with the one you were looking for.
