Tour Scotland Video Scottish Step Dancing And Music King Edward Street Perth Perthshire

Tour Scotland video of traditional Scottish Step Dancing and music at the International Folk Dance Festival on visit to King Edward Street in Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. Step dance is a form of percussive dance, with origins in Scotland, which has had a strong tradition in Cape Breton where Scottish emigrant communities settled. Step dancing is often performed at Cèilidhs. The style is exciting, percussive footwork, danced in hard soled shoes to music played at a particularly tempo on bagpipes, whistle, fiddle or puirt-a-beul mouth music. Dancers beat their heels, toes and feet in as many ways as possible and imaginable, keeping time with the rhythms of the music in Strathspey, reel and jig time. There are many steps that can be learned passed on through family generations.
