Whatever opinion one may have of the RSCDS and their particular
form of SD it does seem to travel. I have never heard/seen anyone
who has ever come across a club/group of Reelers or Ceilidh dancers
outside the UK.
Are there any such groups? If there are I'll lay a small wager
that there are not as many dancers who go reeling as those who dance
the RSCDS way....... or similar !
The formula seems to work!
