Canada is a big place------Where???

"Where" was Toronto, in the early to mid-1950s, through a combination
of ceilidh dancing (usually under some form of military sponsorship)
and SCD in the Rosedale Presbyterian Church Hall. This was before the
establishment of the Toronto Branch (Association). Too bad I can't
remember the exact year, as my half-century mark must be coming up
soon!

In the "exotic" - or at least less usual dance locations was the
United Arab Emirates - where I was on the Abu Dhabi St. Andrew's
Society SCD demo team in the late 1980s. I can remember doing demos -
for free dinners and drinks - at Burns Night celebrations on three
successive evenings one January, and also dancing at the Dubai
Highland Games!
