Dance Information

This Strathspey, SOAP, was devised by Zsolt Molnár in 2010 as a result of playing with the letters of the pilling type description of Scottish dances.

The outcome is a dance, which is really easy to remember: if you know the title of the dance, you know the order of the figures in the dance.

Tune: Any 3x32 bar Strathspey.
