Performances & Ceilidhs
Demonstrations and Displays
SCD is actually ballroom dancing which is designed to be fun to join
and do. But the dances also look great on stage, and the music is
really rousing! Therefore we also like to perform – at private parties
of all kinds, club or company “dos” or afternoon parties at old
peoples’ homes, the Ranzenbrunnenfest
in Sindlingen or, for example,
the Scottish highland games in Neu-Isenburg.
At performances we usually dance varied, choreographed sequences of up
to 15 minutes in length which combine Scottish Country Dancing and
solo dances. The details are negotiable and also depend on the
context, the venue (space, floor type, …) and the available
dancers. And our prices, if we may say so, are genuinely
“Scottish”. We do, however, need some advance warning – at least 4
weeks ahead would be best.
A ceilidh (“KAY-lee”) is a Scottish dance evening for
everyone. Whether as an “ice breaker” at a wedding party or a team
event at your company celebration, our dance teachers have lots of
experience getting people to dance who so far thought they had two
left feet. And it is guaranteed to be a lot of fun!
We’ll be dancing simple Scottish dances with you and your guests, on a
circle or in longwise sets, and everyone will be able to join in right
away – to exciting Scottish music (we can provide a PA system if
necessary, and we might even be able to organise live music, given
enough advance warning). We just need a stable, clean floor of the
appropriate size and a domestic power outlet. A ceilidh should take at
least an hour to be worthwhile.

Important: As far as performances and ceilidhs are concerned, our
“area of operations” includes evenings and weekends in the (extended)
Rhine-Main area. There are various reasons for this, not least that
most of us are busy with our jobs and families and long-distance
travel with complete display teams takes up too much of our rare free
time and causes considerable expenses which we would need to pass
on. (Certain exceptions are possible in principle, but the bar is
relatively high.) If required we’d be happy to try to put you in
contact with other Scottish dance groups which are located nearer to
where you are and might be able to help more directly.
