Three speeds - Strathspey, Jig, Reel in Country dancing
Everything from March, Strahtspey, Reel, Jig up to Tango and Samba in
Ceilidh dance - limited spectrum?
By the way, apart from having passed the Teachers Certificate
Examination some years ago and teaching a Scottish Country Dance
Class regularly I am as ignorant as to attend Ceilidhs when I come
across them every now and then in Scotland (adapting to the common
footwear there) and I also find pleasure in an occasional Quickstep,
Tango or "English" Waltz. Ain't I heretic ;-) ?
