What is the principle difference between Contra Dance Groups and Scottish Country Dance Groups, both ostensibly social: one puts people ahead of perfection, the other puts perfection ahead of people......??? >> I think the difference is, in what people are willing to do for recreation. The person who played football is considered a sportman. But the person who watches it on the TV faithfully is also considered a sportman. I don't believe anyone puts the dance before the people. It's just a matter of willingness to extend ones personal abilities in their chosen form of entertainement. Contra is a fine form of entertainment but SCD is a more challenging form to me.
