Emily Ritter, our newly appointed Lead Choreographer, has been dancing and choreographing from a young age. Her first Scottish dance choreographies were all set to the tune of Cotton-Eyed Joe and were created when she and her dance friends were supposed to be practicing highcuts in her living room. She soon graduated to choreographing group performances for the Kansas City St. Andrews Scottish Highland Dance Association. She also choreographed several solos that she competed at the B.A.T.D. Sadie Simpson Highland Scholarship and Highland Games across the country. She is very much looking forward to bringing her enthusiastic style to Shot of Scotch, and is working on a new choreography for the group that is part-jig, part-reel and very high-energy to match the frenzied pace of NYC.
