Shot of Scotch Vancouver: Choreography - "Ceilidh-Ready"

Recently performed at the BC Highland Games "Ceilidh-Ready" was choreographed in 2015 by Emma Reid and Kathleen Hall. The dance plays with the typical idea of balance and symmetry in highland dancing -- you'll see that sometimes, the dancers are in sync with each other, while other times, they are deliberately doing the opposite movements. 

The dance was awarded first prize at both the Bellingham indoor competition in February and the Bellingham Highland Games in June, and has been performed for several audiences throughout the lower mainland. Special thanks to Kate McRae for her assistance in polishing this piece.

Bellingham Highland Games - 2015

The Bellingham Highland Games where this past Sunday (June 7th) and dancers from Shot of Scotch and Ward-McRae where out in force competing in the national and choreography dance categories. Two of our SoS dancers Emma Reid and Kathleen Hall placed in the Sailors Hornpipe in the Premier 19 & Over Category; Emma 6th, and Kathleen 4th!!!

Emma, Kathleen, and Sarah Grant (SoS dancers) also competed in a duo and group choreography as part of Ward-McRae school of highland dance! Both choreographies placed first!

Congratulations to all the dancers, your hard work and practice totally paid off! We can't wait for the next games.

2015 FUSTA Choreography Project!

Shot of Scotch NYC had a blast filming for the 2015 FUSTA Choreography Project! We filmed early this morning on the "Wooden Pier" in Brooklyn, New York. We were blessed with sunshine and gorgeous views of lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. After we were done filming we decided to take the opportunity to take a few candid shots! We hope you enjoy! 

We would also like to thank FUSTA for the opportunity to be involved in their choreography project this year, and we can not wait to see the final cut! The video will be out this summer and is set to the tune of "Everybody Dance Now" performed by the fabulous Red Hot Chili Pipers!
