A special programme of Scottish Country Dances that celebrated the 2014 Commonwealth Games
Scottish Country and Ceilidh (pronounced Kay-leigh) dancing are traditional Scottish dances for groups. The Commonwealth Ceilidh was a programme of 15 fun and easy-to-learn dances, including three newly created ones, that celebrated the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Groups can learn the dances with downloadable instructional videos and put on their own Commonwealth Ceilidh event at any time. Find the dances and more information at www.commonwealthceilidh.org
The programme was created by the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) and Get Scotland Dancing as part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme. The RSCDS promotes and teaches Scottish country dancing and is acknowledged as the leading body for this expression of Scotland’s rich cultural heritage. Find your local branch or group.
