Chase That Goose

Dearest Dancing Friends, can it be true? The Highland Ball is nearly here! And as is tradition, your humble dancing servant is devoting a week to Scottish capering.

First up, a lively dance from the Dunedin Dancers of Edinburgh (which is pronounced "Ed-in-burro," not "Ed-in-burg," like the city in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas). While I'm used to chasing squirrels in my dancing days, these folks are on a "Wild Goose Chase."

Next, the "Diamond Jublilee:"

And finally, a popular one, the "Reel of the 51st:"

You have to love that great circle at the end -- keeping in time on a slipping step is not easy. Been there. Danced that.
