ABOUT

BRSDS

The Blue Ridge Scottish Dance School is a new adventure in Scottish Country Dancing:  BRSDS debuts July 5-11, 2020 on the campus of Appalachian State University.  Come spend a week or partial week in the lovely Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina learning Scottish Country Dancing while connecting with new friends or reuniting with old ones.

 

Offerings include daily classes in skilled and social levels, afternoon bonus classes in topics of interest, evening dances, and the Grandfather Mountain Gala to finish the week.  Grab your ghillies and join the fun!

Invigorating for both the body and the mind, Scottish Country Dancing (SCD) is a team-work sport that can be pursued life-long and carry with it lasting friendships.  Originating in 18th century Scotland, SCD is a modern form of the country dancing popular in Scotland and England. The dance, a combination of square dance and ballet, is danced in groups of six to ten people (called a ‘set’) to tunes classified as reels, jigs and strathspeys.  More than 7000 different SCD dances derived from traditional sources such as old manuscripts and printed dance collections and dances being written yet today are catalogued and available for clubs to enjoy.
