Book:
Traditional Step-Dancing in Scotland


Paperback - 240 pages
By: JF & TM Flett
The popular view of Scottish solo step-dances has always been the Sword Dance and the Highland Fling seen at Highland Games. In the early 1950s, the authors of this work began to question whether there was a greater history and variety to step-dancing in Scotland. Between 1950 and 1967 they traveled all over Scotland in their quest, gathering information from the many people who could fondly remember their own early days of dancing. With dances and stories from all over Scotland, this is a comprehensive study of solo dancing in Scotland. The first half of the book gives the historical background to step-dancing in Scotland, the second half gives clear instructions for many of the dances.
