Shot of Scotch Vancouver

Open Call Auditions - Join SoS Vancouver!

We’re recruiting! We are currently accepting submissions for new apprentice company members to join our professional dance company this summer. Shot of Scotch Vancouver performs regularly across the lower mainland and travels internationally as well. In the past several years we have performed in the USA, Paris and China, collaborated with numerous pipe and drum bands, Celtic musicians and dance groups of all ethnic backgrounds. Dancers are paid for their work and get to perform at a variety of events ranging from very traditional to wildly innovative and contemporary. 

Ideal SoS Van members are enthusiastic about performance and excellence in dance, and are open to exploring new avenues of expression through traditional Scottish dance. Though our dancers must maintain a level of fitness to enable them to perform at a high standard, we strongly encourage dancers both actively dancing and those who have taken a short break from premier level dance to apply. We are looking for a combination of technique and performance qualities. Read more about how to apply HERE!

Shot of Scotch New York

Let's Get our Dancing Shoes On
Shot of Scotch NYC is ready for Tartan Week! For us that means visiting dance friends, parading down 5th Avenue and most importantly the Ceilidh! Traditionally a ceilidh was any kind of social gathering. As Scots immigrated to the US, ceilidhs have become important venues for people to celebrate their Scottish culture with dancing, music, food, and drink. Every year we look forward to the Pre-Parade Ceilidh hosted by our friends at the New York Caledonian Club where we get to showcase both our traditional and choreographed dances. At this event we also get to rub elbows with others who are just as passionate about Scottish arts as they lead us in ceilidh dances like The Gay Gordons and, a personal favorite, Strip the Willow. I can’t wait to see you all there!
Dance quote of the season:

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way.
