Dance Recital, Sunday June 1st

May 30, 2008

Haley and I, mad Scottish Country dancers that we are, will again be performing this weekend.  It’s our recital!  HAHAH 😀

Presidio Elementary – 29th Ave (between Geary & Clement) – 3-5p

The other mom in the class is going to sit this one out and take pictures, so there should be some good entertainment coming from that!

Scottish Country Dancing – a collection of Jigs and Reels from yesterday and today

Scottish Country Dancing Class

This energetic dance form is the traditional Ballroom dancing of Scotland today.  Dancers will demonstrate the patterns and steps of lively Jigs and Reels that have been danced for centuries in Scotland. (choreography staged by: S Langdon Kass; special thanks to the parents of our young students who joined us in class and appear today:  Emily Forsyth Conroy and John Sayre)

      Kendall’s Hornpipe – a Jig for 2 couples from 1962 **Haley stars in this one**

      Johnny Groat’s House – a Reel for 3 couples from 1748

      The Rock and the Wee Pickle Tow – a Jig for 2 couples centuries old  **I star in this one**

      The Barmkin – a Reel for 4 couples from 1990 



  1. Four left feet dancing!!! Does the other mom have a vid camera perchance???? I so look forward to the photos of THIS!!! All kidding aside, I am proud of my girls for being able to dance in front of a group!!

  2. I am so glad you and Haley are enjoying this. It would have made Granpa very proud and excited. Can’t wait to see pics of the Forsyth girls in kilts. Love you two. Peggy
