It's a beautiful and inventive performance with great music. But is it really Scottish country dancing anymore? Well, it's stretching a point. It's pretty far from SCD social dancing with some non-traditional steps and unusual figures. But it's a gorgeous display and worth putting up for a look. Enjoy.
