Scottish Country Dance


Wichita Scottish Country Dancers, under the direction of Andy Aitken, demonstrating traditional dances, including jigs, strathspeys and reels.

2:00 PM Learn to Scottish Country Dance

Scottish Country Dance is a social dance form, done for pleasure and enjoyment.  Note how every dance begins with a bow or a curtsey and every dancer dances with every other dancer in the set.  Enjoy the varying dance tempos...from fast jigs and reels to slower-paced strathspeys.  Admire the men and women in Highland wear; the women in their long white dresses with tartan scarves pinned on the shoulder, men in kilts and white shirts.

Scottish dancing includes Scottish Highland dance and Scottish Country Dance.

Highland dance is a solo competitive event on Saturday.
