Thread Name: the teaching of dancing
Subject: RE: the teaching of dancing
We start the Gay Gordons off with "Cock o' the north", then switch to "Scotland the Brave" halfway through, with the change giving the dance a musical "lift".

I've never danced in a celidh in my life (I was a keen jiver many years ago!), but watching dancers and listening to good callers while playing in a ceilidh band for the last ten years or so has certainly taught me the moves.
