Scottish Country Dance resource pages

These pages contain my resources specifically aimed at Scottish Country dancers. I have other pages for Scottish dance in general, ceilidh dance and highland dance.

Are you interested in devising dances and in common terminology? The RSCDS invite anyone to a workshop on Saturday 16th March 2013. See here for more details and application form.

The Two-sex Scottish Dancer

I'm a two sex Scottish Dancer and may seem rather dim,
But I never spend one evening as a full time her or him,
I change my sex from dance to dance, my corners always alter
It's really not surprising I occasionally falter.
The old and simple dances I can manage very nicely
And I can learn a new dance and do it most precisely,
But when it comes to next week I don't know if I can
For I learnt it as a woman and dance it as a man.
And so you men who have the luck to always stay the same
When female gentlemen go wrong be sparing with your blame.
I'll add a postscript to this tale - one comfort I have got
When both the women change their sex it doesn't show a lot!
