Royal Scottish Country Dance Session I & II
August 27, 2014
Scottish Country Dancing combines the grace and control of balletic footwork with the exuberance of Scots folk dancing into a social dance tradition that is simultaneously vigorous and elegant. Dancers dance in sets of four couples to reels, jigs, and strathspeys played on fiddle, piano, and pipes. Scottish Sessions at Pinewoods offer two of the best SCD programs in the country for beginners and advanced dancers alike, along with Highland dancing, step dancing, and music classes. The Scottish Sessions are also known for their outstanding teachers and musicians from both sides of the Atlantic and beyond. Linda Henderson and Graham Donald are our featured teachers this year along with stellar musicians from Scotland and Canada as well as the US. Pinewoods is the perfect setting in which to learn or perfect one of the most exhilarating forms of social dancing. Ceilidhs and after-parties for all are part of the Pinewoods Scottish experience. Join us for the weekend (Session 1, July 10-13), the week (Session 2, July 13-18), or both!
