Dance to Jigs, Reels, Strathspeys and the occasional
Scottish Country Dancing (SCD) provides pleasure and
enjoyment for all ages. It is a sociable form of contra
dancing in which dancers form two lines with couples
facing each other. You don't need a partner — you
dance with a different partner each dance. And where else
can a man dance without pants?
Dances can be descriptive, celebratory, or just plain
dances. You may dance the Saint John River, a
lovely strathspey in which dancers trace the course of
the Saint John River in New Brunswick, or smile at some
Victorian naughtiness in Kiss Under the Stairs, or
thumb your noses at your captors in The Reel of the
51st Division, devised by WWII Prisoners of War.
