“DANCE SCOTTISH” IN SCHOOLS
‘Jigs & Reels’ is a fantastic new publication for teaching Scottish country dancing to children and young people, it includes a book of lesson plans for 25 dances and 5 party dances, a CD of the music, and a DVD illustrating each dance.
It can be used by teachers of very little experience and is supported by an RSCDS Continuing Professional Development course. Although linked to the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, the format of the lesson plans will enable the pack to be used worldwide.
‘Jigs & Reels’ is available for purchase through the RSCDS shop
