Very nice!!! :)
I love the filming you got. And I like watching everyone...There are even some funny parts. :)
Hmm...I like the music for that dance, it's so ''crisp'' and inspiring! And...come to think of it, I think it's on one of our family's CDs! I'll have to go check that out.

Oh my word...wow...there is so much going on in this video to both laugh and cringe at... I think we all need to work on being synchronized as we move and there will be no more collisions and tumbles! After closely reviewing this footage, I was glad to have my conscience cleared that one such wipeout was entirely not my fault. ;)

Haha, yeah we had a pretty crazy night! There were close to twice as many people at the square dance than before and even with the smaller group we were crowded.
Probably the trick to the scottish is making sure that when you turn you don't actually switch places with your partner-you just turn on your own axis. It's also important to make sure you're rotating in the correct direction and that you're doing the section of the dance that fits the music...nothing a little practice couldn't take care of.
Despite all that it's still a fun dance and I hope we'll be doing it at the Christmas ball.
