Prairie Gold CD and Book of Dances

The Branch has produced a CD and accompanying book of dances to celebrate its 50th year of dancing. The music is played by Scotch Measure and all the dances have a local connection, all except one being devised by a past or current Branch member.

Winnipeg Branch History

The Winnipeg Branch has been in operation since 1963 and has had many proud moments.

Dance to Jigs, Reels, Strathspeys and the occasional Hornpipe.

Scottish Country Dancing (SCD) provides pleasure and enjoyment for all ages. It is a sociable form of contra dancing in which dancers form two lines with couples facing each other. You don't need a partner — you dance with a different partner each dance. And where else can a man dance without pants?

Dances can be descriptive, celebratory, or just plain dances. You may dance the Saint John River, a lovely strathspey in which dancers trace the course of the Saint John River in New Brunswick, or smile at some Victorian naughtiness in Kiss Under the Stairs, or thumb your noses at your captors in The Reel of the 51st Division, devised by WWII Prisoners of War.
