Also of Note:

OUR CLASS IN ACTION! Perhaps you've wondered what Scottish Country Dancing looks like? Well, now you can view a short video of our class dancing "Knit the Pocky". (A "pocky" is a fingerless glove, worn to keep the hands warm while freeing the fingers for detailed tasks.)


SCD CLASS AND PERFORMANCE TEAM VIDEOS Here's a short video of members of the Vancouver WA class dancing a delightful jig, Black Donald (2nd Carnforth Coll.), at a retirement home in Januuary of 2011. Here's a short video of The Vancouver USA SCD Performance Team dancing a medley of three dances: Alyth Burn, a jig (RSCDS Bk 3); Linnea's Strathspey, a strathspey (Tim Wilson, 2001); and Red House, a reel (RSCDS Bk 7). This video was taken at the Clark County Fair, Ridgefield, Washington, in August of 2008.
