Mrs Hamilton Of Eaglemount - Scottish Country Dancing Instruction Video
This dance, dedicated to Jean Hamilton, is so-named because Eaglemount is the name of the street in Mississauga, Toronto, where she has lived for decades. The photo shows her with the deviser, Jean Noble, who is originally from Lossiemouth, Scotland.
