Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary


If you are one of the devisers listed on this site and notice any errors or omissions, do please Contact us with any suggestions you would like to make. With around 5000 dances, mistakes are bound to occur, especially with similarly named devisers and we would love to get the details correct.

We do not like to deviate far from the published MiniCribs and so, if the dance is not correct in MiniCrib, you would need to contact Charles Upton's successors; when MiniCrib is next updated we will update this site with the new details.

We have generally only included dances for which a MiniCrib or MaxiCrib exists. If you find yourself listed and would like to see your own version of the crib shown alongside the MiniCrib, or indeed have any other dances you would like to be included on this site, we would love you to send the cribs to us for inclusion. Feel free to include any other details for the 'Dance Information' section.

Brian Charlton was happy to see his Waratah Collection listed here with the relevant cribs and 'Dance Information' attributed to him as, for example, The Bottle Forest.
