The Strathspey Anniversary Collection

This book is the result of the “Strathspey Anniversary Challenge”, a competition held among the subscribers to the Strathspey mailing list on the occasion of the list's 10th anniversary in 2003. Submissions of new dances were solicited from the list’s readership, and the dances were reviewed anonymously by a number of dance teachers among the subscribers and their groups. The ten best dances finally made their way into this book.

On behalf of the Strathspey team and readership, thank you very much for your participation and subsequent patience.
