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!
