Dance Information

This dance, Rolling Dancers, was devised for wheelchair dancers by Zoltán Gräff in 2009 to enrich their repertoire.

They learnt to Scottish dance in one day, on 24 June 2009. They started at 11am with learning the figures, the dance was devised after noon, and they managed to learn it by 7 pm. They performed the dance just two days after it was devised.

As the dancers with wheelchairs move relatively slowly, they use twice as many bars for each figure than would be normal.

Tune: Any suitable Jig.
