In accordance with government directives, Place des Arts has suspended its activities until further notice. These measures have been put into effect due to circumstances relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Consequently, the Introduction to Scottish dance activity has been cancelled.
This Introduction to Scottish Dance workshop will shine a spotlight on the various ties that bind Montreal to the farthest reaches of Scotland, on the similarities between our cultures and our music, and, lastly, on magnificent Gaelic melodies that are as enchanting as the Scottish landscape.
No experience required! Guided by two instructors and with accompanying live music, you will learn a few fun and simple dance steps like the Gay Gordon, Strip the Willow, the Dashing White Sergeant, the Canadian Barn Dance, and the St. Bernard Waltz. The activity will conclude with a performance by the group Boussaroque.
