Scottish country dancing is a sociable dance form with its roots stretching back some centuries. Dancers are grouped into sets of 3, 4 or 5 couples arranged either in two lines (men facing women) or in a square, and work together to dance a sequence of formations; everyone dancing each position in turn. It is mainly danced socially, for pleasure and enjoyment. The basic steps and formations are easy to pick up but technique can be continuously improved to achieve an elegant and balletic dance form. With over 10,000 existing dances and new ones being written all the time, most of them with their own specific music, there is always a great selection to choose from for both beginners and the more experienced.
Brussels Dance Scottish will concentrate on making Scottish country dancing fun and sociable for all levels of dancers and encouraging participation in our own annual event (day school and ball with guest teachers and musicians) and those organized by neighboring groups in France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom - and even further afield for real enthusiasts; you will find Scottish country dance groups all over the world.
