I believe the setting step used by the ladies in the Poussette is a Highland Schottische step, which may explain some of the comments. There is a Strathspey setting step which does not appear in this dem as best I can determine. The travelling step is the Strathspey travelling step as is currently danced in RSCDS-style dancing.
Sorry, but I disagree. It is Scottish, as Scottish as if danced in Ceilidh style or in a reeling style. It is not English nor French, it is in fact Royal Scottish Country Dance Society style. You may critique the execution of the dancers, you may not care for this style, you have even voiced an opinion that it is not Scottish, but that is an opinion, not fact.
Thanks for your comments, the ladies will be pleased. Fort Langely is less than 1 hour East of Vancouver, Canada. Take I5 North and turn right once you reach Canada.
I recognize some of those people!
Yes, some of the products are not sold with lids, but lids are available separately. I don't view this as a prblem, just a cost factor. And I suspect the frying pan is Demeyere Proline, not Atlantis (there are no Atlantis frypans in the current catalogue as best I can determine). I'm a very amateur cook who is building up his set of Demeyere cookware piece by piece, and I love using it.
That's a great video! Nicely following up on The Schiehallion on Schiehallion. I have circulated a link to some local (Vancouver, CANADA) dancers who are also hikers and walkers with a thought that we can do an extreme dance of our own. I think the difficulty maybe matching the name of the dance to a location here. Well done! Cheers.
Wonderful! I can see this catching on.
As a bit of personal trivia, Hugh Thurston, who devised this dance, was a mathematics professor of mine when I was a engineering student at UBC (Vancouver, Canada) in the 60s, and he ran a SCD Club on campus. I didn't take up dancing until 40 years later.
Looks like you were having a lot of fun - what else matters. Older people can have fun too, I had the privilege of dancing with some of these same dancers in Catch the Wind at Love to Dance 2009 and their energy (and sense of fun) was contagious. Not likely I'll forget that evening.
I recognize some of those dancers - Jack, Judith & Lin for example.
The dance's full title is Ian Powrie's Farewell to Auchterarder, often just called "Farewell to Auchterarder" in this part of the world (Vancouver, Canada). (Used as a dem dance by the RSCDS Vancouver Branch Demonstration Team during Burns Season 2008)
