Our 2017 Programme

Our programme for 2017 is now well underway.

Note there have been some changes of musicians on Tuesday nights since this leaflet was prepared. The detailed cribsheets in the table lower down this page have been amended to have the correct musicians.

Dancing will take place:-

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

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.

We thank Jim Scott for preparing the cribsheets
and Brian MacRae for preparing the program leaflets.

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.
