Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary

Scottish Country Dances For Children A - K

This collection of Scottish Country Dances For Children is aimed specifically towards children, teenagers and beginners. Many are gathered from respected publications like Scottish Country Dances for Children by Muriel Johnstone (RSCDS), the RSCDS Books Of Graded Scottish Country Dances for younger and less experienced dancers, Katherine's Book by Iain Boyd and SCD for Children and Teens published by Jean Douglas; others are from our own experience.

These dances are more simple to dance and to teach. They are by no means the only dances suitable for young or inexperienced dancers but the list should prove a great place to start and to get ideas.

Note that almost all are jigs or reels which are better suited to the natural movements of young children; the few strathspeys included are intended to introduce older children to this more controlled form of dance.
