Types Of Dance

Scottish Country Dances are classified according to The music to which they are performed.

From the Scottish Country Dancing point of view, Reels, Hornpipes and Jigs are all in Quick tempo and use the same steps; Strathspeys are in a slower tempo and have different steps.

A few dances, perhaps more properly classified as Ceilidh dances since they most commonly appear at the informal social events of that name, are performed to other tempi.
