    Re: Scottish Dance

    Your selection is from a film called Scotland through her country 
    dances, if I seem to remember correctly. I have a copy of it but it is 
    packed away somewhere. I believe it was made featureing the dem team of 
    the Edinburgh Branch some time in the 60´s. Someone may want to check 
    with Mary Murray on this as I believe she was either a member at the 
    time or a former member, I forget which. All of the dances in the film 
    were RSCDS published, and they were done in a costume appropriate to 
    the date of the dance and in appropriate locations. I remember Red 
    House was done in 17c costumes, no kilts, and both men and women had 
    wigs and high heeled shoes. Re Simon´s comment, I don´t think this was 
    a McNab dance as I seem to remember all the dances being RSCDS, I could 
    of course be wrong on this.
